: anyone ever heard of the phrase "walk in the Sun with one's head held high"

If you could just change that phrase, "walk in the sun," to "walk through the storm," we'd have something for you, namely, "You'll Never Walk Alone," a huge hit from the 1945 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel. I'm not sure but I think just about every American recognizes the song, and can hum along if not actually sing it.

When you walk through the storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone.

The lyrics don't always appear with precisely the same words, but I'm not going to quibble. SS
