This song, adapted from the Beatles’ classic, was performed this past Sunday by Corey Cotter Linforth. Thank you to Corey for sharing your passion for a better world with us:

Beirut reeling from the acts of war
A crowd of people turned away
It didn't stir our hearts
They don't look like us
They'd love to make us see

Woke up, fell out of bed, dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up, I noticed I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat, made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs to get some air
Somebody spoke and I couldn't breath


I saw the news today, oh boy
A child face down in the sand
And though he was so very small
We have to count them all
Now we know we don't have enough to share
We'd love to take you in, but...”
