From Gretchen Sleicher’s “Songs for The Great Turning” web site
To acknowledge in song our pain for the world – the suffering of myriad beings and the destruction of the natural world – engenders a shared experience that breaks us out of denial. It lets us know we are not alone or “crazy” in these feelings, which arise from our caring and connectedness. Allowing them to surface in song is collective healing.
