Please listen to “I’m Here,” a song on love, loss, and reunion. The lyric to the song is from my poem, To All Hearts That Break, which I wrote in February 2015 in emotional response to the tragedy of Bobbi Kristina Brown and her mother, Whitney Houston. A few months before a young girl I knew committed suicide. The sudden deaths of loved ones in my family. The murder of a teenage boy in Newark who had been my patient so many years ago. The Newtown, Connecticut massacre of innocents. The daily reports of gun violence and around the world terror attacks, domestic violence, home invasions, drive by shootings, children caught in the crossfire, accidental drug overdoses that result in death and despair. It is endlessly sad.
Please join me in praying that our Love in 2016 is endlessly strong so that Hope abides and overcomes.
Wishing you peace & love,
