Country music legend supports life


Dr Tom Rogers, immediate past national vice-chairman of SPUC, wrote to me today as follows:
In case you haven’t heard it before (it first appeared in 2011) just thought I’d share with you this very beautiful song with a pro-life theme by country singer Collin Raye. See the video above.

Raye wrote it about his experience with his young granddaughter who suffered and eventually died from a rare neurological disorder. He released it in support of the Terry Schiavo Live & Hope Network, and in response to the whole pro-euthanasia agenda. A heart-warming antidote to much of what we were hearing last week anyway. You can read more about the song here:
