I went a LEO event yesterday before Step Sing (which is a story in and of itself). The speaker was Dot Maver, who is the president of the National Peace Academy. She works with the UN and other organizations worldwide to promote peace. She said a thousand beautiful strings of words and I wish I had the memory to remember every single thing she said but I don’t. The one thing though, is she spoke about how music can bring us all together and then proceeded to lead us in a singing of Libby Roderick’s song How Could Anyone which was sung in 2008 when Hillary Clinton went to Beijing to speak out for women’s rights. It goes like this:
HOW COULD ANYONE EVER TELL YOU YOU WERE ANYTHING LESS THAN BEAUTIFUL?
HOW COULD ANYONE EVER TELL YOU YOU WERE LESS THAN WHOLE?
HOW COULD ANYONE FAIL TO NOTICE THAT YOUR LOVING IS A MIRACLE?
HOW DEEPLY YOU’RE CONNECTED TO MY SOUL.
