Amber over at Goodnight Moon is hosting this song linkup EVERY THURSDAY - how awesome is that? I love the fact that last week's linkup had more than 40 participants, with only two songs duplicated! Go check out Amber's blog and link up with us!
This week's song is by Mike Corrado, who I have blogged about before. I LOVE this artist, and not just because he is a Marine. His video for "On My Watch Tonight" includes photos of my hubby (the link to that song and video can be found in this post). His song "Start Saving Me" resonated so deeply with me during our second deployment that it topped my playlist for months. (link to that song is HERE)
But this song, STAND, is one of Corrado's newest...and it moves me to tears right now. It reminds me of the pure heart that still beats somewhere within the amazing man that I married - regardless of the emotional/psychological wounds he's suffering from these days. It reminds me of his commitment to the Corps, to the country he loves and would still die for.
I couldn't find the song on playlist.com, so I am using Youtube this week:
(next week I will be back with more awesome Depeche Mode, because I have really been feeling their album "Sounds of the Universe" for a few weeks now)
