"Take Me" started with events like the Dark Night Rises theatre shooting and so many attacks before and after. We see so much violence in society today. Being the parent of two beautiful young children, and I am surrounded by so many wonderful friends (you in LW are the people who give my life reason), I think of the pain and suffering that the survivors feel. The anger, the lack of control, the inability to conceive how this could happen….so many emotions…The inability to forgive, the guilt of surviving, not being able to protect the loved ones: "Why them God and not me?" But, somehow, we must continue, always respecting the will of God, being ready when it is our time. So, we do our best to live a good life, always remembering those whom we have lost, waiting to get to the end, when we can be with them again.
It's difficult to write words about the words. My hope is that the combination of music and words bring out the emotion that moves others to get meaning that applies to their own life, struggles, pain, and that they can let go and let God take them to eternity.
Peace & Love & JOY,
