Around the time that I was reading about parents of children killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, going to Washington, D.C. to plead with a Congress unwilling to tighten the nation's gun laws, this video for "Another Day" arrived in my inbox.

Not to bore you with my political views, but the NRA is poison, and the thought of parents showing photos of their children who were shot to death to legislators in hopes of bringing about sane gun laws pretty much infuriates me.

So, thank you Christoph Krey of McAlister Drive, for writing this song in response to Sandy Hook that speaks above the political static.

There's no missing the sadness in "Another Day," but there's also an air of hope that some how, some way, something like Sandy Hook won't happen again.
