This week, we'll look at migrations and aspirations. For millennia, people have moved from one place to another seeking better lives. Whether it was for better hunting, soil or jobs the migration was like rivers to the ocean, constant and inevitable. The sorrow of leaving behind the old and struggle to establish the new have marked every one of us. Immigrant and resident alike. " We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community... Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own" - Cesar Chavez
We'll begin with this stunning ambient piece by Mar.ch called 'They Are Looking For A Country Of Their Own'
