U2- Ordinary Love (From Mandela OST) Lyric Video

“A man named Nelson Mandela once fought against a seemingly unbeatable adversary—apartheid.  In his country, people were classified and separated by race.  Those with the darkest skin were deprived of basic human needs and oppressed by the government.  Mandela was in prison for twenty-seven years but he never gave up hope.  He once said, ‘The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.’  Don’t believe the lie that you shouldn’t be afraid.  Fear is normal.  Use it.  Conquer it.  Remember—the Guardian has prepared your path.  She chose each of you especially for this task.  Work together and return to us safely.”

The Red Cloak, Volume 2 of Days of the Guardian

“Be a hero!”

Flowers – Diane Prokop

It’s Spring!

I wrote this song years ago and it still remains one of my favorites. It’s an ironic play on the mantra “everything’s going to be okay.” Okay is pretty subjective. Besides, sometimes it’s not going to be okay. Sometimes that’s good. We are forced to change and grow. This song reminds us of what we can do in the midst of this not-okay-ness. Flower. Grow, wait, look pretty. Survive as long as possible, doing what you were made to do. Everything, including flowers, is temporary.

In Days of the Guardian, the Captain advises Ainsling to do what is necessary and what is possible. In time, she’ll find herself doing the impossible. On my best days, I believe this is true. Do you?
