John Denver was an incredible singer song writer and humanitarian. Eighteen years ago today he died in a plane crash in California.

I loved the good he wanted to bring out in people and his optimism that we really can bring about significant change in feeding our hungry and living in a world of peace. His songs were about love, nature, hope and possibilities. He was an inspiration and his work continues to inspire. He was so gifted and wrote so many wonderful songs, it is hard to choose just one to share with you here. This song feels like it could have been written today – even though it’s been over 25 years since this recording. I am grateful for the gift of his message and for him. You are missed, John. Enjoy.
