A song about a child's prayer for peace. Written by a talented friend of mine. Directed by me with her vision guiding us all. These are her words:
"This song has been in my head for years, begging to be born. The message isn't new; most of us long for peace, for an end to violence, every time we hear about another school shooting or murder suicide--or war. Sadly, a song like this could be about last year or ten years ago or fifty. But now seems to be the right time to bring it forth. So many young people dying in so many meaningless, achingly sad ways. Only a child would have faith great enough to believe a simple prayer might solve it all. This is my prayer for us all, that we find that faith and answer the prayers for peace of children everywhere.
