    This is a song that has a very special meaning to me.But as I read it I think it will mean a lot to all of us.

    HERO by Mariah Carey

    There’s a hero
    If you look inside your heart
    You don’t have to be afraid
    Of what you are
    There’s an answer
    If you reach into your soul
    And the sorrow that you know
    Will melt away

    And then a hero comes along
    With the strength to carry on
    And you cast your fears aside
    And you know you can survive
    So when you feel like hope is gone
    Look inside you and be strong
    And you finally see the truth
    That a hero lies in you

    It’s a long road
    And you face the world alone
    No one reaches out a hand
    For you to hold
    You can find love
    If you search within yourself
    And the emptiness you felt
    Will disappear.

    And then a hero comes along
    With the strength to carry on
    And you cast your fears aside
    And you know you can survive
    So when you feel like hope is gone
    Look inside you and be strong
    And you finally see the truth
    That a hero lies in you

    Oh ho, Lord knows
    Dreams are hard to follow
    But don’t let anyone
    Tear them away, hey yea
    Hold on there will be tomorrow in time
    You find the way, hey

    Then a hero comes along
    With the strength to carry on
    And you cast your fears aside
    And you know you can survive
    So when you feel like hope is gone
    Look inside you and be strong
    And you finally see the truth
    That a hero lies in you
    That a hero lies in you
    Umm, that a hero lies in you

    I gotta tell you, I'm not a big "diva-style" music fan, but I've always liked this song. I figured she may have written it when struggling with her own ultimately public mental health issues. Thanks for posting. :smile:
