There’s a Light in Every Child’s Eyes

 I watched the short video linked below and and was deeply touched. CASA is a wonderful organization and service. The  song was written by a dear friend, Denis Loiseau. I’ve co-written several songs with him. He is the “CASA Volunteer” in the video. Mike Lounibos is the singer and “Bus Driver”. Mike, Denis, and I co-wrote a song together a while back.
This song (which I had no part in creating) touched me deeply and warmed my heart. I invite you to take a mental break to enjoy and allow yourself to be touched by this song, video, and message.
I dream of writing such a song some day.

    Having seen two distinct instances of children that didn’t have parents who could fulfill their parental obligation, I could always see the light in their eyes…despite their own personal hardship. I think the title and the words are very fitting and it is wonderful to see people who take on this responsibility of helping those who can’t help themselves through no fault of their own. And if Mike actually did become the advocate, I say Kudos to him! Very moving indeed, thanks!
