Maya Angelou said, “History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.” There have been many tragic things in our history. Today is a new day, a day to do better, and a day to celebrate God-given freedom and live to make sure every person feels that freedom in their lives. I am grateful for my freedom and grateful that a few months ago I woke up with the word “freedom” repeating in my mind and a prompting to write this song. I was blessed to have two members of the Bonner Family do the vocals on it and to have Becky Willard use her magic for the production. I hope this song will help remind us of the gift of freedom and to use that freedom to live with love, mercy, and kindness for all people and to bring us closer to God.
