For many Americans, 1968 was the worst year ever. The Reverend Martin Luther King was assassinated, the Vietnam War escalated, US cities and college campuses rioted in protest, and Richard Nixon was the President Elect. Christmas of 1968 also saw television coverage of humans orbiting the moon for the first time.

My daughter Cait chose the tune and performed the solo. I finished the backup trio up a little late for the Hope for the Holidays event, thanks to some technical difficulties in the studio.
