    that was amazing. We need more of these stories and less of the senseless violence we’ve come to know every night.

    Lyrics to the song for those who cannot hear

    She dropped the phone and burst into tears
    The doctor just confirmed her fears
    Her husband held it in and held her tight
    Cancer don’t discriminate or care if you’re just 38 *** They change this part to 48 and 2 kids*****
    With three kids who need you in their lives
    He said, “I know that you’re afraid and I am, too
    But you’ll never be alone, I promise you”

    When you’re weak, I’ll be strong
    When you let go, I’ll hold on
    When you need to cry, I swear
    That I’ll be there to dry your eyes
    When you feel lost and scared to death,
    Like you can’t take one more step
    Just take my hand, together we can do it
    I’m gonna love you through it.

    She made it through the surgery fine
    They said they caught it just in time
    But they had to take more than they planned
    Now it’s forced smiles and baggy shirts
    To hide what the cancer took from her
    But she just wants to feel like a woman again
    She said, “I don’t think I can do this anymore”
    He took her in his arms and said
    “That’s what my love is for”

    When you’re weak, I’ll be strong
    When you let go, I’ll hold on
    When you need to cry, I swear
    That I’ll be there to dry your eyes
    When you feel lost and scared to death,
    Like you can’t take one more step
    Just take my hand, together we can do it
    I’m gonna love you through it.

    And when this road gets too long
    I’ll be the rock you lean on
    Just take my hand, together we can do it
    I’m gonna love you through it.
    I’m gonna love you through it.
