Joan-of-Arc-riding-into-battle.

This is the song Joan of Arc and her soldiers sang on their horses en route to each battle.

Whenever I need inspiration, or am just in need of some feel-good, I listen to this song. As I listen, I think about Jehanne, what she must have endured, how unshakable she was in her faith.

And, inevitably, I feel uplifted, like I can do anything…
