Sanctuary by Carrie Newcomer

This week’s Song of the Week was recommended by MIA Reader Martha Barbone.

This song embodies what I need when I am in a difficult place. True, natural peer support. Having that person(s) who is just there for me without judgement or need to change me….I have not often had this, but have played the song over and over to help me get through it.
