I read Malcolm Gladwell’s book The Tipping Point at a time that I was in the middle of a huge transition in my life, after getting fired from a job I loved because someone decided that my light was too bright for them. I had just bought a new house in Seattle and was struggling with — “ what am I going to do with my life, am I gonna take this lying down, am I defeated, how could I have let this happen.” I was so distraught I waited two weeks to tell my parents what had happened.
Hallelujah, sing hallelujah. John’s rendition of Leonard Cohen’s song is majestic. There is nothing like a crowd of people singing this song together to remind you of who we are as humans, who we should be and that we all need a little more kindness, love and compassion in our lives, our country, this world of ours.
