Song That Needs Writing
Date: September 1, 2013
At church today I spoke with a man who was shot down in Germany during WWII. What a tale he has to tell; dogfights, being a POW... It made me think I would like to write a song to thank men and women who have sacrificed so much for me to keep my freedoms.
It would be a tricky text. I would like it to be Christian for use in general or for a final commendation. Dealing with the terrible moral struggle a Christian soldier must face juxteposed with the sense of duty and gratitude from the community would be difficult.
Anyone interested in collaborating? I call composer of melody. Lyricisist? Arranger? I have a genuine admiration for this man and others like him. There are not many left from WWII so this is a project with some urgency. It could be writtten for all soldiers.
With my marketing hat on. This sort of piece could be very successful. A third grade teacher wrote a thank-you song for his/her kids to sing which has received a ton of views online. Many people have deep feelings about this.
