Sing….Sing a Song

You know…I’ve been trying to write this all morning. Yes…I should’ve started earlier, but what can I say? Only that I DID NOT start earlier. But here’s the thing: I can’t think much about singing while I’m sick to my stomach with worry.

Two people that I care about (plus their families) travel the paths in London that were hit with hatred and destruction this morning. I’m not sure if they are okay. I’m not sure when I will know. My friend Erin and her husband recently moved back to London from Germany and are staying with her in-laws. Our friend Aidan commutes by bus and tube everyday to get to work. I pray for their safety and also for all the people who’ve been affected.

I also pray that we all can find something to sing about. And as cheesy at it is…the Carpenters (and Sesame Street) had some damn good advice:

Sing, sing a song
Sing out loud
Sing out strong
Sing of good things, not bad
Sing of happy, not sad.
Sing, sing a song
Make it simple
To last your whole life long
Don't worry that it's not good enough
for anyone else to hear
Just sing, sing a song.

I understand if you all hate me now…I’ve accepted this. I’ve come to terms with this. I’ve even laughed a little at many of you having this song stuck in your head. But it was necessary.

Next week I promise not to post any more cheesy songs that will probably get stuck in your head.

I hope your friends are okay. I love love love that song:-D



Jesus Christ just wished that your friends were okay. That is so cool.


I totally had to read that 3 times and then read the 1st comment to get that.

I hope Aiden and your friends are OK. Let us know...

i DO get that song stuck in my head. I think of Crystal Gail singing it on Seasame Street...
