Hold On Just a Little While Longer

Spoiler Alert: This post contains spoilers for the video game Detroit: Become Human.

Happy Thursday! 🙂

I don’t play video games too often, but if I do play, I prefer narrative-based games. 🙂

Recently, I played a game that I absolutely LOVED and HIGHLY recommend: Detroit: Become Human.

In this game, you get to make choices for 3 different androids in a civilization where androids are generally treated as merely property.

My FAVORITE part of the game was when the android Markus led his fellow androids to sing “Hold on Just a Little While Longer” while they were being held at gunpoint for peacefully protesting. Here is a video of the song:

This part of the game gave me goosebumps. I was overcome with so many emotions.

I thought about all of the suffering that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused. I also thought about all of the suffering that has resulted from centuries of racial injustice. As I thought about all of this, I began to cry.

Actually, when I found this video clip from the game for this blog post and watched it, it made me cry again! 😉 It’s such an incredibly moving song! ❤

I hadn’t heard the song before, but I had assumed that it wasn’t created for the game.

I found that the song is actually from the year 1980, and it was written by Cleophus Robinson Jr. Check out the original song here:

Isn’t the original absolutely incredible? It’s such a beautiful song! ❤

I know that this pandemic has caused so much suffering. 😦 But please “Hold on Just a Little While Longer.” More and more people are getting vaccinated, and this pandemic is getting closer and closer to ending.

Stay safe! ❤
