congrats Mark and Catie!

Mark Erelli and Catie Curtis just won the grand prize in the International Songwriting Competition.

Their song, “People Look Around,” is a stark, honest portrait of the United States and a cry for humanity — for us to be more human:

Mississippi River divides this land in two,
Like the way we tend to think of things;
Black and white, red and blue.
If they can keep us fighting about marriage and God,
There’ll be no one left to notice if the leaders do their jobs.
