Darden Smith reunited with past retreat participants the Strade family to check in on how they've been since they last met and how the family was handling the pandemic. Together they wrote "Holding On" on Zoom.


"Holding On"

There’s no notice or neon warning sign
You go through the motions like it always been
Then suddenly life hits you like a ton of bricks
It’s change then it’s change then it’s change then it’s change again
I don’t know how I don’t know why
Where others might fall, we choose to fly

Holding on to each other
Holding on to who we are
Make a joke
Cry a tear
Through it all we’re still here
Holding on, holding on

Stuck in place while the world spun round
Seasons came and went and I never knew
I was down in the valley, I was scared to hope
Day after day after day I saw the light shine through
Don’t know how don’t know when
Every day one more chance to win

Joy can roll like a river
And carry us all to the sea
On that day we will be together
There’ll be nothing to fix, no where to be
