Now in response to the gravity of the heartbreaking situation in Texas with thousands of refugee/immigrant children being separated from their families, we cannot wait any longer. This message is burning in me and must be shared.
As a mom I will not sit back in silence while this happens on our doorstep. I want us to have a different place in history with this story. Let's refuse to let this be our story. I wrote this song as an effort to ignite our hearts with compassion so we can together join our voices to change the narrative and advocate for the voiceless, to love our neighbors.
This is not a partisan issue, this is a human issue and I need your help! If you know anyone that can use this song as a tool to further amplify their voice surrounding this issue please share it! Let’s gather our voices together friends, let’s move in compassion and love together.
I also recently sat down with Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul and Mary) to discuss this song and issue. He blew a mighty wind into my sails and is championing this song with me. You can read more about our conversation here.
