I love Tracy Chapman and this is a beautiful set and rendition.  When she sang “If the sky, that we look upon/Should tumble and fall/And the mountain/Should crumble to the sea” from Ben E King’s simple lyrics, I realized that what had always been a metaphor was no longer so and I wept.  I hope that the power of standing together can help us.
