A meeting point for you and me

“The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind”

This is probably one the most popular songs of all times, or at least that’s what I thought before I realised that for many of you, young students, Bob Dylan and his ‘protest’ song belong to my time. In fact, he wrote it in 1962, the same year I was born. Unfortunately nowadays his questions about peace, war or freedom haven’t been responded yet, so the answers are still ‘blowing in the wind’, and I’m afraid  future generations will keep asking the same questions again and again.

Blowin’ in the Wind  –   Bob Dylan

How many roads must a man walk down
before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes and how many times must the cannonballs fly
before they’re forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind;
the answer is blowing in the wind.

Yes and how many years can a mountain exist
before it is washed to the sea?
Yes and how many years can some people exist
before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes and how many times can a man turn his head
and pretend that he just doesn’t see?
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind;
the answer is blowing in the wind.

Yes and how many times must a man look up
before he can see the sky?
Yes and how many ears must one man have
before he can hear people cry?
Yes and how many deaths will it take till he
knows
that too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind;
the answer is blowing in the wind.
