It's hard to fully express what Bob Marley's music has done for me as a young person growing up today. I think that a lot of people would say that the times have changed and wonder how my generation can listen and love Bob's songs the same way they could several years ago. That's the point though. His music is so timeless and classic, I can't think of one song that doesn't hold true to today's standards. He truly was a head of his time, but the funny thing is that I think if he still lived today, he would continue to be one. I will always love Bob for what he has done to me and the people I love. I truly feel his lyrics in my soul and they make me want to dance. I will bring my children up listening to him and I hope that they too will respect him the way I did when my parents played him. I just wish that we could have someone so brillant step up today. He was a man, not a God and not an idol-but he could sing and write consciously. Two qualities sadly lacking in today's world. Wherever you are, we'll be forever loving you.
