For this experience, I chose to write a letter to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Of all people, why them, right?
Because they, along with Mary Lambert, gave the world Same Love. They got the attention of a lot of people and they did something incredible with it. They spoke the words that so many don’t get to speak. And they made it cool.
I was able to see the true power of Same Love’s message when I watched this video (my favorite is the girl in the fur – “AIR HUG!”). One kid said, “If you want to marry the same sex, that’s okay. Just like Macklemore said.” That’s exactly what music should do.
So thank you again for giving the world the gift of Same Love. And for my cool sticker!
