To kick off the holiday season, Diane of Good Mourning, Glory! will be hosting a week long blog carnival complete with guest bloggers and giveaways to celebrate diversity and coexistence. Yours truly will be a guest blogger on Saturday, November 21.
Therefore, to celebrate the Coexist Blog Carnival, Diane (also our Musical Monday host) has requested this week’s participants pick a song with a coexist theme. I chose From a Distance by Bette Midler.
Several years ago during my teaching days, my elementary students sang From a Distance for our holiday concert. The words are much more meaningful when you hear a choir of young children from different ethnicities sing the song. I still get choked thinking about their sweet voices.
As I searched for the video, I stumbled upon a Christmas version of From a Distance. It’s a nice twist to a song already about peace, harmony and love for everyman.
I hope you watch the Christmas version. The images are truly stunning.
