When my Grandmother passed away I had a extremely difficult time. To cheer me up the family let me pick the video to rent. I got Across the Universe. When the song Let it Be came on I wept. Not one of those "this is touching I got a tear," but one of those ugly cries where the song stopped and I was still sobbing. I got the CD and played it for a three months. It was my drive to work and my drive home. It was my letting go and letting be. The phrase and the song tell me that bad things happen but we aren't alone and that through it all the love remains.
My one liner...
Let it be.
