Have your faith in humanity restored by Sherri Gray, a 75-year-old Christian grandmother from Nashville, Tennessee who wrote the sweetest song about rainbow flag as a tribute to the LGBTQ+ community.

Sherri is essentially the person version of homemade chicken soup, and I want to shield her from any potential mean YouTube comments and bake a cake with her. She captioned the video with this message.

38 years ago Gilbert Baker created our beloved Rainbow Flag as a symbol for our community. Equality, respect, diversity... and so many other positive words come to mind whenever I see our Flag. And yet...even in deep silence, my heart "hears" the loving message of those six bright colors. I hope your heart will, as well.

Sherri went viral in 2013 after writing a song for the wedding of her niece Shannon to her then-fiancée, Lisa. She has also written songs about common sense gun laws and trans rights. See? Not all old people are narrow-minded curmudgeons.

Talk about healing the world with music.

In the song, Sherri sings, "Fly high, sweet flag, fly proud and free! Protect our world community. Fly high with love, for hate’s a drag. We’re proud of you, Rainbow Flag."
