Music & Merchandise
I felt obliged to revisit this song which I wrote many years ago about the time I emigrated from Ireland. During the height of "The Troubles", concerned that my infant daughter would be raised in a society riven by sectarian hatred, oppression and escalating violence, we fled our homeland.
Now the world is experiencing the largest human migration since World War II. The violence I personally experienced gave me a few grains of empathy and compassion for the vast desert of human suffering currently being endured by millions of people seeking refuge outside of their native lands.
