“Heritage” (feat. Jordan Jenkins)

“Heritage” (© 2021 Jordan Jenkins & John Charles Weston) is song #20 of John’s Song of the Week Challenge. “Heritage” was written in 2021.

This song was as difficult one to write as the content was to sit with. However, Jordan and I found it impossible not to say something about the recent increase in horrendous right wing hate and violence that has occurred in the United States. Though these right wing movements are largely fueled by misinformation, their impact is real. Rather than sit in silence and live with the helpless grief these events have caused, we decided to put our thoughts to music. This song is the result of that decision.
