shine a light for peace

Today I thought I would share a video clip from my children's recent school Christmas concert.  As usual, hundreds of proud parents, grandparents and relatives stuffed the school gymnasium to beam and cheer as their wee loved ones performed.  This year, Last But Not Least was chosen to do a solo for the final song, where all of the students came together to sing.  The song is called "Shine a Light for Peace," and given the events in Connecticut this weekend, and that it is sung by children that same age, it is all the more poignant to me.  Plus, I am an extremely proud, gushing mama :)  Hope you enjoy it!

Wishing you all Peace.

Delightful! It's a while since I attended my own daughters' Christmas concerts and I'd forgotten the hesitant, slightly shambolic nature of them. It all adds to the charm! And the singing is beautiful. I love how they start off quite shy and then begin to soar. So cute. And, as you say, so poignant. Yours tearfully xx
