This song has been playing in my head ever since the election day nearly a week ago.
"I'll Rise" : A cover by Ben Harper for the famous words of Maya Angelou.
It seems as though a new country, or more like a new feeling, is emerging these days.
With the election of Joe Biden, and an announcement for substantial progress with the making of a Covid-19 vaccine... something is rising.
Could it be... hope? Yes, it's hope. It is HOPE.
'So you may write me down in history
With your bitter twisted lies
You may trod me down in the very dirt
And still like the dust I'll rise.'
I'll let the song speaks for itself, give it a listen:
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
