She sits below me humming, quietly, softly. Soon, I hear words accompanying the humming.
Don't Give Up,
Don't Give Up."
It is the sweetest sounding little song.
Her voice is slow. The words gently fall from her lips as she examines something unseen to me.
After a few minutes I ask her, "What is that song you were singing honey?"
I want to know where these words come from, what they mean to her, why she decided to sing them today, of all days, when there is catastrophe around the globe, people hurting, people dying . . . her little song is for them, I think.
"It's from Yo Gabba Gabba," she tells me.
Oh, well then . . .
A mother's hope is crushed in one fell swoop by the most annoying television show for little people known to man.
