Last winter I saw a photo of a refugee child in a row boat with a single tear falling into the water. My mind immediately thought of that tear floating over to America. And someone wading in the water and it hitting their feet. And this person, not knowing why, but feeling an overwhelming sadness. I cried. I can feel the heaviness over all of us as we are becoming aware of the cruelty that so many are experiencing in other countries and in our own with the gun violence and racism. This song is for all of us. So we can stretch and hold hands and not fear anymore. Let the ground be strong enough to hold us up and love all people.
