“Keep going! Keep going!”: Crosby and Nash at Occupy Wall Street

Filmmaker and activist Sandi Bachom has posted this video of David Crosby and Graham Nash, singing for the Occupy Wall Street protesters yesterday:

What a powerful, and powerfully symbolic, moment: the musicians who helped supply the soundtrack to previous movements for social justice, forging a new connection with today’s protesters, with a timeless song about the bond between generations.

I’d always thought that “Teach Your Children” was only about passing on your love and wisdom to your kids, but now I see — revisiting the entire song, below — that it calls for children to reach back as well: “Teach your parents well… / And feed them on your dreams.” What a deeply moving song of solidarity, compassion, and understanding. And love.

Crosby and Nash explain their support for the OWS movement here.
