Wow! What a beautiful song, what profound words, such tenderness and authenticity of emotion, what natural strength and leadership of voice!

This is one of those songs that will always propel us forward. Connie Francis herself surely applied its message during some of her most desperate moments in life, braving assault, trauma, and surgery to return to the stage.

It is also a song for so many of us right now in the fight for freedom, as we may feel sarcastic and jaded at times. If we stop worrying about what could go wrong or fretting about how impossible things are, and instead focus on how we are going to win, we will all do better.
