Morning guys! Found this song on MP3 doing my daily decluttering challenge, and was blown away by how powerful it still is! Touches on so many things we talk about here – charity, freedom, introspection, and even those on which we don’t, but are still unfortunately very prevalent in our society. Was super moved all over again at how beautiful this song is, and hopefully […]
