“These are the times that try men’s souls.” – Thomas Paine, Dec. 1776
Sometimes these feel like times that try the souls of humankind as well. But there have been such times before.
For your listening pleasure: one of my all time favorite folk music groups (blacklisted in the 1950s during the McCarthyism era), The Weavers, at their final reunion in Carnegie Hall less than a year before Lee Hays’ death in 1981.
Our faith cries out we have no fear
We dare to reach our hand
To other neighbors far and near
To friends in every land
