Spirit of Life lyrics
Spirit of Life, come unto me.
Sing in my heart all the stirrings of compassion.
Blow in the wind, rise in the sea;
Move in the hand, giving life the shape of justice.
Roots hold me close; wings set me free;
Spirit of Life, come to me, come to me.
"McDade, now 72, has given her life to what she calls the movement. By that she certainly means the feminist movement that dramatically changed what was possible for women since she was a girl. But she also means a chain of linked, politically progressive causes: She has actively opposed wars, South African apartheid, U.S. foreign policy, and nuclear power. She has worked for economic justice, environmental protection, and the rights of women migrant workers, prisoners, refugees, and lesbians.”
To everyone on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic:
You're keeping us healthy. Safe. Fed. Moving. Cared for. You're essential.
Whether you're an emergency room nurse, grocery clerk, police officer, delivery driver or any and everything in between, the Friends of the Walkway and our partners with New York State Parks believe you deserve a gesture of thanks as grand as your contributions to the Hudson Valley. So we made you one that's 202 feet long and comprised of more than 1,300 points of light.
