Today's Sunday Song is a stunning song. Grab a cuppa, sit down, shut of the noise of the world and enjoy it. Enjoy it because it shows hope, potential and the fact there is a better world we can all reach.
People said South Africa would end in a bloodbath - instead it ended in a truth and reconciliation commission that enabled a nation to move forward by confronting the missjudged power of the past. Violence breeds violence - both in words and deeds.
People said men, women, gays, blacks shouldn't have a vote, a say in society or the basic right to walk along the street. Other said no - you cannot build your security upon someone else. That breeds insecurity. It delivers a world in which you only feel secure by oppressing others - that isn't security.
Ultimately this Sunday Song is dedicated to all those willing to make a stand and make the world a better place. If you want to see me weep then it's fairly easy - sit me down with Bread and Roses, Milk, Land and Freedom...Sit me down with a film that shows people saying "No! We will not take this any more. These are our rights and we will stand firm until we get them".
