Most of you will know by now that this year’s 12 Days of Christmas series showcases a collection of songs that communicate hope. So far there have been songs from Bill Withers, The Beatles, Johnny Nash, Bob Marley, and ELO. At the end of the twelve days, there will be a playlist of all twelve tunes and maybe even some of your choices added to that list. These past couple of years have been awful for many and I fear that things may get worse before they get better, so I hope that these songs make you even slightly happier. Today it is the turn of the late, great Sam Cooke with “A Change Is Gonna Come”. The song was apparently inspired by a number of events in Sam’s life, particularly when he and his entourage were turned away from a whites-only motel in Louisiana. He has said that he felt compelled to write a song that spoke to his struggle and of those around him, and that pertained to the Civil Rights Movement and African Americans. This song always inspires me, what songs do that for you? Once again stay strong people, and if you are feeling particularly low talk to someone. I am happy to be here for you if you need me!
