MESSAGE FROM MICKEY HART
I was a kid from Coney Island, Atlantic Beach and Far Rockaway. The Shore was the totem, the centerpiece, a physical representation of community spirit for many generations. My inspiration for this song began when I saw Brian Williams on the NBC Evening News. Brian showed distress clearly in his eyes and voice. It was a deep loss, not just property, but so much more. Jon Bon Jovi was with Brian, telling the story of personal loss of his sense of place growing up, losing his most precious places, now only memories--powerful, moving words . After the broadcast, it was birthing time. The song was born in 5 minutes. It is a tribute to the people and to the place we call The Jersey Shore. It’s a song of victory over adversity. A song of hardship, of hope, tears, and smiles--but above all survival. It's time to rebuild what we've lost. Let's bring back the beauty. Your help is needed now, more than ever. Please give what you can.
