"What is my favorite Bob Dylan song and why. Without question as a writer and narrator. A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall. It is a brilliant narrative of observations of the world through the eyes of a blue eyed son (innocence ?). Each line in a few words captures the ugly and the beautiful. The moral is don't let it get you down, silence you and make you numb. Acknowledge it, know it, think it, speak it and breathe it. That is the road to help change it and remember what is beautiful and positive in the world. The two go hand in hand, so don't get lost in either, balance."
