Sarah McLachlan - Angel: I can't say enough wonderful things about Sarah McLachlan, and this is one of her best that has followed me since it came out in the 90's. I think that this and many of her other songs really hit the target in explaining a lot about the relationships I have chosen, some of my development into adulthood, two decades of nearly debilitating depression and an endless hope and trust that propels me into a fascinating and boundless love for everything and everyone that enters my heart.
In The Arms Of The Angel- TODAY IN SANDY HOOK ELEMENTRY SCHOOL CONN. TRAGEDY RANG LOUD. 20 CHILDREN LOST THEIR LIVES ALONG WITH OTHERS.AS WE TRY ONCE AGAIN TO FIND SOME REASONING FOR EVIL IN OUR LAND, OUR HEARTS BREAK ACROSS AMERICA.
