Today's Video Share: Madonna of Tears by Radio Stranger

Co-writer and vocalist Kelly Brightwell commented, "Radio Stranger's "Madonna of Tears" has struck a chord with many people and celebrates the power and resilience of women, in the archetype of the Sacred Feminine. The seed of the song came in the very first line: "I come from a long line of women who cry..." I thought about different women I knew and their inspiring (and sometimes heartbreaking) stories of strength and perseverance. The idea expanded to not just women in my family and community, but also to mythical realms such as the tale of the Virgin Mary (in her manifestation as the Madonna Delores) and even the concept of the Earth Mother. Seen through this lens, our struggles are sacred, our tears are transformational, and our open hearts can heal the world."
