(originally written on December 9th, just before the ceremony)
One last word before the ceremony. Today we’ll be singing:
I think that this song would fit Carole well, as she always tried, as much as possible, to invite anyone asking her or needing it, for a meal.
This song is also more relevant than ever, as migrants continue to (try to) cross the Mediterranean Sea by the tens of thousands, and as the “president-elect” still has not abandoned his idea of a border wall.
We hope, as Carole hoped, that people, politicians in particular, left- or right-leaning, will have the generous yet realistic vision that welcoming others is always an enrichment for all.
