Hold On – A Ballad for the Twenty First Century
By Renee Davies

For the 30 Japanese students who sat quietly, waiting for parents who never came to collect them after the tsunami hit Japan in March 2011; for the people in Alabama who lost their homes and their families during the tornadoes that hit the state in May 2011; for the Haitians, ravaged by the earthquake that claimed 222,570 lives in January 2010; and for anyone who knows that this celestial orb we call home is a beautiful but precarious place – this ballad is yours.
