In addition to any of my own original posts that I may write, most days I browse through some YouTube videos and, as I’ve mentioned before, I’ll pick on some to share with you, my dear readers. Sometimes I go through a second selection process if I’ve built up a backlog of open tabs awaiting sharing on here.
Then, occasionally, one comes along that I feel deserves immediate sharing because it sends a message; either about how I feel in that moment or because I sense that it has an important part to play in our lives at the present time.

I’d like to round off a full dozen postings with one of your choices, so leave a comment below if there’s a song that you feel follows this theme and I’ll pick one of them for tomorrow’s last post in the series.
Stay safe, and know that love and understaning will win through.
