Standing Tall

the spirit of defiance...

"To become truly great, one has to stand with people, not above them."
 – Montesquieu

"Strong people stand up for themselves, but stronger people stand up for others"
 – Suzy Kassem

"Show respect to all people, but grovel to none."
 - Tecumseh

Standing Tall

Standing Rock pipeline protests, Tiananmen Square massacre, Arab Spring uprisings, Black Lives Matter movement, Women's Rights March on Washington, and now the Ukraine demonstrations against the 2022 Russian invasion... The list is endless but each historical event exemplified the spirit of defiance against "establishment" injustice.

About the Music:

While noodling on the Native American Flute this melody came to me. It has a hint of majestic pride yet being in a minor key, there's a bit of sadness in it as well.
