Coming together in pain and hope

I remember after Sept 11 2001 how the country came together in pain and patriotism, and now I am seeing a similar thing, but this time it’s hope and patriotism.

We need these family reunions from time to time, I think.

This video captures a little of that family reunion spirit.  It is of Pete Seeger leading an enormous crowd in “This Land is Your Land”.  Pete Seeger records were the soundtrack of my childhood — my whole family loved him and his optimistic folk singing.  He’s in his 80’s now.  Thanks to my sister Kayray for pointing it out!

About katiekind

Enjoying the second half of life. I have three sons who are the apples of my eye and a wonderful husband of 35 years--those are the important things. Long ago, out of the blue, I became a Christian. It was something I never planned on, but what joy it has been. I do website development and I like to read and garden and paint and I love beauty and truth.
