This week we observed the one-year anniversary of the Trump-led attempt to overthrow our democracy on January 6, 2021. Our nation and our democracy held firm and we're still standing against the Republican Party of Insurrection but we will need to pass voting rights protections to keep standing strong. We can't let down now.

Songs about things that are new or starting and songs that express hopes and desires for good things you would like to see in 2022 are all on the fresh slate this weekend.
