Last night I saw the most uplifting performance I've ever seen on a television show I usually don't pay much attention to.
Archie Williams, wrongfully convicted, wrongfully imprisoned for 37 years, and exonerated based on DNA and the work of the Innocence Project, stood before 3,500 people on national television.
The song of his choosing perfectly fit him as a person. Elton John's Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me.
I can't light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I'm growin' tired, and time stands still before me
Frozen here on the ladder of my life
Don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
But losin' everything is like the sun goin' down on me
Don't discard me just because you think I mean you harm
But these cuts I have, oh, they need love to help them heal
