A Monkees Tribute To Jonestown Survivors
August 20, 2012 in Cinema
Jonestown showed us our innocence lost alongside our own paradise lost, and we can only wish Milton had concentrated on cheese production in rural England as subject matter, and not the terrible fate upon fate that befell those in Jonestown.
For is not Jonestown Everytown?
Literally any town in the world can be the setting of mass murder – just as long as there’s enough people. That’s all it takes, Ladies and Gentlemen.
Rest in peace, Jonestown massacre victims.
Sleep a little sounder, Jonestown massacre survivors.
Let The Monkees sing the truth to power, and love to hate.
From the video description:
“This is another departure from the types of videos I usually make, but I felt compelled to do a tribute to some of the brave souls who survived the massacre at Jonestown. If anything positive is to come from such tragedy and loss, it is that their pain was not in vain and that more can be done to help prevent such terrible things from happening again. The faces of these people show rays of sunshine and their memory is not forgotten. Let’s continue to honor them!”
