My Land’s Only Borders Lie Around My Heart: A Canada Day Meditation

There’s an absolutely wonderful song that was part of one of my favourite musicals, Chess. It’s called “Anthem” and it’s sung by the Russian chess champion on his move to another country. He’s accused of leaving his homeland and renouncing his Russian identity by moving away.
