A Note About how this Song Came to Be from Melanie: 

In these times, everything is about the breath: I can’t breathe, holding our breath, not be able to breathe on each other, the Mother Earth gasping for breath. 

How Is this Song Creating the World We Want? 

The song has a body percussion part that rhythmically massages the lungs as we sing.
