Song of the Week: "If I Can Dream"

As a non-Christian, Easter has never really been a holiday I've observed much, but this one feels particularly dour. Part of it is the dark, rainy weather. Also, part of it is the stuff in the news. Everything feels precarious, and there are people I know personally who are making it worse, and who are going to be Good Christians today even as they cheer on the destruction of people who aren't them. (I know, because I'm related to a few of them, which is a real punch in the gut.) So today's song is my favorite Elvis song, from his 1968 comeback special.
