I’ll never forget when he sang this song at Bonnaroo and I was immediately emotionally connected. Not everyone knows your past and not everyone needs to know your past but it’s something that will always mold you into who you want to be or who you don’t want to be. I respect Macklemore for finding these inspired words in his soul and being daring to risk his image to spread his experience and beliefs. This song reminded me to think about things I didn’t want to think about for a long time and gave me a quick glimpse of where I could have been and where I’ve come since then. Thank God for mercy and grace.
