Even when the dark comes crashing through…when you need a friend to carry you…when you’re broken on the ground…you will be found. So let the sun come streaming in ’cause you’ll reach up and you’ll rise again. If you only look around…you will be found.

● Spotlight a news item that we missed when it first hit, but we’re pretty sure you’ll want to know about.
