"Shed a little light"

This song, written by James Taylor, with its simple but poignant lyrics, delivered without fancy production work, is a wonderful tribute to Dr. King. On days when the vitriol and ugliness are tipping the scales, taking a minute to listen to it helps to clear the mental clutter. It reminds me that there are reasons to shut out the hate and greed and continue the work that Dr. King and so many others taught us is fundamental to communities both small and large.
