It might almost seem like the results of a game in which you’re given three random nouns – say, “garage door,” “Willie Mays,” and “song” – and asked to write a coherent narrative using all three. But Joe Henry’s “Our Song” is more than that – it’s another one of Henry’s short-stories-set-to-music. (If you want to know where this song actually came from, read this.)

It seems to me that one way to honor veterans is to remember the potential this country held. Or used to hold. Frankly, I’m not sure any more.
