coronavirus schools are closed meaning no field trips. Children and adult programs
offered by Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists are now canceled untiled next October.
Like all communities around the globe, we are dealing with a new normal.

Video Of The Week — The Hollies’ 1969 Song, “He An’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”   Leave a comment

Poor

Those of us from the Viet Nam/Civil Rights era will recall the Hollies and the song, “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother“. The Hollies may be better remembered by some for  Creedence Clearwater Revival inspired song,  “Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress“, but the 1969 “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother” is the one where the lyrics meant a lot to me, and over the years have been carved into my very soul as a reminder of the importance of sharing and caring:

It’s a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we’re on the way to there
Why not share
And the load
Doesn’t weigh me down at all

He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

Often we are moved to pity when we see and experience suffering, but does the feeling manifest into acts that show caring and sharing? Are we a society that takes care of its most needy members? I think not! It seems to be all right (the “New Normal”)to spend trillions to kill while seeking to destroy the social advances of the 20th century. All Peoples are our brothers!
