Feb. 23 — Song of the Day

Today, America is reeling from news that the nation has lost about as many people to COVID-19 in one year as died in combat during the entirety of the first and second World Wars. This is staggering and heartbreaking, and no song can speak to the enormity of the moment. So, all I can do is choose one of the more beautiful rock songs ever written about loss, Better Than Ezra’s “A Lifetime.” The song is appropriate because it addresses the pain of loss while stressing the importance of honoring the wishes and memories of a deceased loved one. Here’s to the memory of those who have died and hope for better outcomes in coming months.
