The Horror Honeys: Weekly Honey Jam ~ 'Free to Be You and Me'

Weekly Honey Jam ~ 'Free to Be You and Me'

There's a land that I see where the children are free
And I say it ain't far to this land from where we are
Take my hand, come with me, where the children are free
Come with me, take my hand, and we'll live
In a land where the river runs free
In a land through the green country
In a land to a shining sea
And you and me are free to be you and me

If you grew up with hippie parents, there is a solid chance you also grew up watching Marlo Thomas' Free To Be... You and Me. Incredibly ahead of its time, Free To Be... was all about eschewing societal gender norms in favor of being whoever it was you wanted to be. Whether it was a little boy playing with dolls, babies who don't know anything about gender, or a little girl embracing the beauty inside her inherently, this revolutionary special was something that hasn't lost one bit of its relevance today. In Sarah Adina Smith's The Midnight Swim, three sisters raised by a hippie, environmentalist mother bond over their recording of a video performing the Free To Be... You and Me theme song. And if you identify with their past, the scene in this haunting film will resonate with you as well. ~RH
