Tuesday Tunes - "Love Wins" because it does and it will


So whether you believe in God, fate, or coincidences: Carrie Underwood releases her newest single "Love Wins" around the same time we as a nation lost two great lights: Senator John McCain and Aretha Franklin and at a time when we often find our differences more than our common ground in this country. We lost two giants but in those great Americans we saw examples of how we should live, discuss, and serve. Mrs. Franklin was concerned with the welfare of the people of Flint, MI in her final days and at her funeral a President, Christian Pastors, and an Islamic leader standing together to remember her. Isn't that the point: even in spite of our differences that we respect each other in those differences and come together to support each other during difficult times. At Senator McCain's funeral we saw a family stand in the face of immeasurable loss for their loved one on international television so bravely. We see people who have fought and debated come together to support this family, the county and serve as an example of how to grieve a hero's loss and try to foster more moments of debate, discussion, unity, and respect as he did.
"Our shared values define us more than our differences. And acknowledging those shared values can see us through our challenges today if we have the wisdom to trust in them again." - Senator John McCain
Please remember that in all the bad, sorrowful, scary, and difficulty that can surround us in this life that LOVE WINS. It always will and it always does; just hold on. LOVE WINS!!!
"I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers; And I, I believe we're made to be here for each other; And we'll never fall if we walk hand in hand; Put a world that seems broken together again; Yeah I, I believe in the end LOVE WINS."
