"As the Spring, Unconquered"In this episode, we introduce you to Francisco Dean, a musician, educator, and podcast producer. Francisco shares with us how he brought to life the memories of Holocaust victims by using their own words, combining them with the art of sound design, to form a powerful composition entitled "Frilingdik Umbazigt - As the Spring, Unconquered". The composition was performed live by the students at the University of Chicago Lab School using sounds captured from artifacts in the archives of the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center in Skokie, Illinois. It is a moving piece that captures the pain, hope, and struggles of Jewish people, young and old, at Auschwitz Concentration Camp. Told in 2 parts, this is an episode you don't want to miss. We are so fortunate to have a behind the scenes look at Francisco's creative process. This video will be made available to all our members on our website. www.sowpodcast.com

In this, part two of our conversation, we continue to focus on the power of voting and how we (the people) can come together and unite for change by using our voices at the polls. And why it is important to teach children from a young age why the voting process is so important.2020 has been a year like no other. So many of us are apprehensive about the future and what it means for our families.
