This Is Easter for Me: Joan Baez Singing "The President Sang Amazing Grace"

This is Easter for me — Joan Baez singing "The President Sang Amazing Grace," with Jeff Scheer's beautiful animated video accompanying the song.

And this is Easter — Arkansas Times' quote for the week:

When I forced myself to walk out of my school March 14 at 10 a.m., I did so knowing politicians and adults weren't going to save me and my friends. ... They want us to sit down and shut up. To silently be spectators to our own future. Don't. Go up there and do what you think is right no matter the consequence. Don't allow the Koch brothers, Tom Cotton, Asa Hutchinson or the NRA — don't allow them to decide what your future should be. What your country should look like. 
~ Wylie Greer, a 17-year-old Greenbrier High School student who was paddled after he participated in a national school walkout for gun safety, speaking Saturday at Little Rock's March for Our Lives, part of an international day of marches for gun safety. Several thousand people attended the Little Rock march, which culminated with speeches at the Capitol.

And this is Easter — red-winged blackbirds singing next to a neighbor's house as we walked past it on Good Friday:

A good Easter to those of you celebrating this liturgical holiday — and a nice spring weekend day to all readers wherever you are!
