Sweet Honey in the Rock: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMl9RUP9fDM

My hospice patient died two evenings ago. Her son called to let me know. I was asleep, but with people in hospice and home health so active, I am careful to have the phone at hand. I cried after calling him back. Ok, expected and all that and over ninety and I grieve anyhow.

Oh, I am tired of death and I am tired of sickness and I am really sick of cancer and I can't wait for this election to be over and I am thoroughly bummed about racism in my country in the world....

And Sweet Honey in the Rock is my go to for grief songs and mourning and fighting... but joy too.

Oh, I don't need no history no national no family, please
I need an absolutely one to one, a seven day kiss!
Help me now!

Somebody come and carry me in to a seven day kiss!
