When I first heard Colbie Caillat’s new song, Try, on the radio last week I thought, “Well there is a good message in that song.” Then I moved on. Colbie isn’t exactly my genre of tunes, but I’d listen to it twice just for the message.
Then I started to see my Facebook stream flood with links to the video. Call me Queen Lemming, I had to click.
Then I had to get tissues.
Then my teen daughter, and even my seven year old daughter.
This video goes far beyond the song. It’s the message every child and young adult, boys and especially girls, and – admittedly- even I needed to hear.
