A Letter from Los Angeles Musician Philip Romero

Philip Romero, Matt SedilloMichael,
It was great to meet you and Terri last week at the 100,000 Poets for Change meeting.

As 2012 draws to an end, Lee Ballinger and I share a desire to bring attention to the record number of military suicides that will punctuate this year. A statistic that should stand with resonance among all people, regardless of the beliefs that divide us.

The challenge is bringing focus to an issue that so easily slips into the political categories we identify with and protect beyond reason.

It is my belief, music has the power to break this ideology and speak above the din. The following is a music video for the song “Farewell”. The song recounts a soldier’s capitulation to the dehumanizing effects of war.

We are currently promoting the dialog that starts with not accepting these deaths as unavoidable consequences. We would appreciate any attention you can provide our efforts.

I thank you for your consideration and I look forward to helping make a difference through 100,000 Poets for Change.

PM Romero – 714-797-0862
Songwriter – Musician – Activist
