An Associate Press article on the Post-Dispatch reported two parents have been convicted to six months in jail and 10 years probation for the death of their 10-year old daughter.

When the daughter presented symptomps of diabetes, the parents decided not to take her to the hospital but instead prayed for her to get better. She died, and they do not regret their decision.

More on this in my next column. Prayer

If you go to YouTube and type the words “beautiful arabic chant,” the first video that will show is this:

Beautiful isn’t it?

Music can connect us with the deeply spiritual in ways that any other medium might not. I believe music is divine and has a special meaning to make us reflect upon our own hearts.

Do you have a special song that connects you with your inner self? Makes you self aware of the divine or just deeply moved?

Let me know; share it with me and others.Angel_3

About a year ago I came upon this song called “Farshy Turab” or “Dust is my Bed” in Arabic. Even if you are not Muslim, this songs reflects the simplicity, the pain and the uncertainty of death. Aside from any beliefs, the voice is beautiful and it can be very relaxing, though, if you read the subtitles you might be sadden.
