To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
Nobody embodies the spirit of this quote better than my friend Lori Franklin, the author of Jane Be Nimble. Lori inspires me every day. She also wrote my personal favorite post that has ever appeared on this blog.
Lori fights every day under circumstances that would crush and cripple you or I.
I’ve had this song sitting around for a long time, nameless. Full disclosure: I played it for my wife at our wedding reception, but it didn’t have a name. After reading an email from Lori the other day, I’ve decided to name it after her.
Here is Lori.
Lori, keep marching forward, even (especially) on the days when you can’t get out of bed.
Thank you for everything.
Everyone else, please tweet this, facebook it, take it with you wherever you go today. I want to get a ton of people over on Lori’s blog.
PS: I started a guitar performances page that already has a couple of songs on it.
