Composer and Friends School of Minnesota parent Adam Wernick wrote and recorded a song to honor Sandy Hook victims and their families. The photo editors at Minnesota Public Radio created a touching and tasteful photo essay to accompany it.

“My hope is that a song written from the perspective of a parent who has lost a child can be a powerful reminder of the very personal nature of the Sandy Hook tragedy and the many others that preceded it. Music and lyrics can lodge in one’s heart and soul in a more lasting way, perhaps even a more transformative way, than the spoken or the written word.”

I know you are all quite busy and life moves so fast, but I hope you will take a couple of minutes to view it. If you like it, it would mean a lot to me if you shared it with others.”

Thanks so much!

Adam Wernick
