    For old timers like me, I was moved by the use of the old civil rights anthem “We Shall Overcome” – don’t underestimate the power of music to help bond participants.
    I’m not sure what good it will ultimately do but it certainly was good therapy for me, and helped restore hope as there were so many young people of very diverse backgrounds, perhaps a version of “the future belongs to us”.
