I don't think there is a song that can say it more clearly than this one when it comes to speaking for those that were abused as children. I knew someone that had lived within this song. She was abused as a child. She spent her short adult life self-medicating on drugs and alcohol trying to find the halo of innocence that was stolen from her as a child. Sadly, the only peace she ever knew happened one night when she was hit by a stray bullet. She died and won't be here this Christmas. I will remember her most at Christmas time, when no matter how anguished she was inside, she would buy and put toys in a toy barrel for children. After she put the toys in the barrel, and when she thought no one was looking, she would kneel at the barrel and say a prayer. Please remember the unfortunate ones at Christmas times…you may see them hiding in the corners of your city…they are the invisible ones…help them any way you can. Thank you… sorry for the red eyes, but this song brings tears to my eyes

Oh Skip, thanks for sharing this song...and the spirit you are sharing too.
I knew and helped children in my lifetime who were abused, hit and unloved. Such damages and hurt in their hearts for all their life, lives broken. They need LOVE LOVE LOVE from us...and for the Christmas Seasons, they need to feel the same spirit and abondance as the fortunated children as well. They are children...angels come in the earth to be loved, not to be abused, hate and unloved. And sometimes, abused children are very near from us and we cannot see their distress.
Thanks my friend, (hope my English is ok)
Love you!
Pauline

Skip - this is a moving performance my friend.., and your
dedication in memory of your friend just adds depth and
meaning to this. Beautiful singing my friend! I agree..,
we need to remember those unfortunate souls - I know
at times I fall into a self pity state but stop and look around
and see no matter how bad I think I have it, many someones
are having it worse. Thanks for reminding us.
