I know saying Facebook is requiring my passport because of my song sounds crazy...but they are



Facebook has identified my song "Beautiful Way" as being of "National Importance". 

In a way it is flattering. But mostly it is wrong.

As an artist I strive to deal with deep issues.  This includes dealing with issues of national & international importance. 

The song "Beautiful Way" is on "hold" until I provide my passport.  (It is not Tax id information Facebook is demanding.) 

I highly resent being required to show my passport in order for Facebook to approve my artistic expressions.
