What Matters Most is How Well We Walk Through the Fire - Thom Stockton

My son Jordan (aka Elevated Thoughts) wrote this melody and produced this song for Thom Stockton. "Thom Stockton is a multi-faceted musician born and bred in the heart of Northern California. Specializing in lyricism and charm, Thom is sure to win you over with something from his eclectic repertoire. Whether accompanied by an acoustic guitar, or a slappin' beat, if you get into the message, you're sure to get something out of it."

Demonstrators protesting the death of Luther Brown, a Stockton man who was killed in an officer-involved shooting Friday afternoon, were joined by Occupy Oakland and the Oscar Grant Committee Tuesday afternoon.

Between 150 and 200 people packed Martin Luther King Park, across the street from Stockton City Hall. Around 50 Stockton Police officers donned riot gear.

“They say use your head
Instead I always use my heart
That’s probably why I’m losing my mind
I was falling apart at the seams
Of my heart on my sleeve
Of my hardened heart
Please pardon me…

Let’s face the facts
I know you’re fightin’
But I wouldn’t let you go through hell alone
I’m right here.

…What matters most is how well we walk through the fire”
