This is also a great song for racial reconciliation. I heard it for the first time after being stuck on the highway during the long clearance of a bad road wreck up ahead. This song describes the unique little community that formed as a multiracial group walked vehicle to pass the news from highway patrol-- that five children were being coptered to hospital. To me this song will always carry the tears of that news amidst the joy of simple community.
