Uregently Needed: A Song of Hope for Ray Sanford

Recommended Posts

Ray Sandford is a 54 year old resident of Minnesota who lives in a small apartment of his own.

Ray happens to be diagnosed w/ bipolar disorder.

For the past year and a half, police officers arrive at Ray's home on Wednesday mornings and escort him to a nearby psychiatric hospital where his brain is electrocuted against his will. This causes Ray to lose his memories of friends and family, amongst other things.

He was last shocked on Christmas eve, despite a court injunction attempting to stop this from happening.

Ray is not a criminal, just a regular guy who has had some emotional problems on and off through his life.

There is a massive campaign happening on Ray's behalf, and any and all help is appreciated.

I simply wanted to post here to ask if anyone has any ideas for a song of hope for Ray during the holiday season?

I can think of few people who need it more.

Listen to what Robert Plant says just before this song begins:

EDIT: Due to the ongoing dispute between youtube and Warner Music my link is no longer available. The song was "Stairway To Heaven" off the album "The Song Remains The Same: The Soundtrack From The Motion Picture" by Led Zeppelin. Just before they break in to the song Robert Plant says "I think this is a song of hope". I agree....
