Hello everyone! My sister once told me that she would be interested in hearing the ‘stories’ behind the songs. Due to the recent tragic events that took place in Orlando, Florida, my mind has been reeling with the senseless acts of violence that continue to rock our nation and world.  This week I would like to share the story behind a song I wrote titled, Let There Be A Place.

On the night following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that occurred on December 14, 2012, I awoke with the tragic event permeating my thoughts. At the time, I was working with a large number of 11 and 12 year-olds on a daily basis.  The thought that such a violent event could occur so close to the holiday season, and in a place much like the one where I was employed, rocked me to the core.  I cannot write these words without feeling powerful emotions for the children, their families, and each and every one of the staff members involved.  It was with these overwhelming thoughts that I wrote down the lyrics for Let There Be A Place.  When a person dies at the hands of a random act of violence, I am unable to find solace.  To begin the healing process, I almost always reach for pen and paper.

My daughter suggested having a sunrise as a backdrop for this song.  A few days ago on June 20th, I headed to the local state park to photograph the Summer Solstice sunrise.  It was an extraordinary morning.

Let There Be a Place

Let there be a place
Where you can dance forever
Feel the love of yesterdays
Surrounding you with smiles
Someone’s holding you near
Someone’s holding you near

Let there be a place
Where your laughter rings clear
Lighting up the night sky,
Like a million shining stars
Someone’s holding you near
Someone’s holding you near


Take care of each other
And show us the way
To remember your joys
In a thousand different ways
Every life you’ve touched
Carries you close


Let there be a place
Where your dreams
All come true
And friendship
Surrounds you, everywhere
And everyday
Someone’s holding you near
Someone’s holding you near



Hope is being able to see that there

is light despite all of the darkness

-Desmond Tutu

Thanks for stopping by and be well.
