Tune for a Monday Morning

And now for something a little different from the folk, roots, and world music I usually post here of a Monday morning: Rise Against's "Make It Stop (September's Children)" (via Patty Templeton). I love this anti-bullying video (particularly the peering-into-the-future end sequences), and wish it had been around when I was a teen. There's an interesting piece about the creation of the song and video here, on the band's website.
