Songwriter Ryan Scott Bomberger described the song below, entitled Meant to Be, in the following way: “My biological mother was raped, yet despite her unspeakable pain, chose Life. This song simply says thank you for giving me a chance to love and be loved.”
Even in response to the evil of rape, because of one loving mother, a voice is going forth on behalf of the many others that are “meant to be” but are facing extinction (Ryan is behind the “Black Children are an Endangered Species” initiative). Amen, Ryan! Run your race in the Lord! You were indeed “meant to be” for such a time as this.
