    This song came up soon after our grandson took his life in March. I know it made us think more about dealing with those in pain.
    It made me less condemning and mor understanding about our youth. And hopefully see the signs of depression before something like that happens again.

    Reason for this song is to remind us Boomers that the youth today are hurting.
    It sure opened my eyes after the tragedy in my own family to how I seemed to see more judgement and less compassion for the time our youth are living in.
    After listening to the song, I realized my own part of living in the 50s while they are living in the very radical troubled times of today.
    And the idea of a WILD DOVE landing on the hand of his brother outside the funeral home was very unusual. The dove is known as a peace sign and hope.
    For a dove to approach 4 people 'some smoking' much less land on the hand of one of them smokers was amazing. Also the brother who was taking his loss so hard.

    They played this at my nephew's memorial service yesterday. He was an avid fisherman.
