One Voice – Make it heard

More than a few years back, I saw the Wailin Jennys perform this song live in Vermont. If you have ever seen them perform, you know you can feel their 3-part harmonies through your core. Their songs are passionate and emotional and the stories behind them are poignant.

Today, on one of the most important 24 hours of our lifetime, I heard this song on my Pandora station and it nearly brought me to tears (what can I say it’s been an emotional election cycle):

I remember them singing this song when they were here and telling the story of what it was about and why it was written. I think you can guess where I’m going with this. It’s a message about how we’re all coming from the same place, we’re all reaching for the same goal. We are all truly one.

The message seemed so apropos on the day before this crazy election, I thought I would share the lyrics.

One Voice – by the Wailin Jennys

This is the sound of one voice
One spirit, one voice
The sound of one who makes a choice
This is the sound of one voice
This is the sound of voices two
The sound of me singing with you
Helping each other to make it through
This is the sound of voices two
This is the sound of voices three
Singing together in harmony
Surrendering to the mystery
This is the sound of voices three
This is the sound of all of us
Singing with love and the will to trust
Leave the rest behind it will turn to dust
This is the sound of all of us
This is the sound of one voice
One people, one voice
A song for every one of us
This is the sound of one voice
This is the sound of one voice

So, on one of the most important days of our lifetime, I urge you to be sure to get out and vote tomorrow. Your voice does make a difference.

No matter who you vote for remember we are one all fighting for the same thing and we do have a voice. It is not just the presidential candidates you’re voting for, it’s your local government too. If you want to make a difference in your community and in your life be sure you cast your ballot tomorrow.

Peace!
