A video and picture collage from the horrific Boston Marathon terror attack of April 15, 2013 featuring my newest song inspired by little 8 year old Martin Richard who lost his life on this day. Dedicated to Martin's memory and the entire Richard family as well as to all of the victims. R.I.P. Martin, Krystle Campbell, Lingzi Lu, and Officer Sean Collier. Stay strong Boston!!! PEACE!!!

I've been here lying in my bed, so many thoughts inside my head
I just cannot comprehend how an 8-year old is dead
Because of someone's thoughtless, cruel and heinous ways
My little girl is also eight and I just can't believe the hate
That must consume a person to create
A bomb to hurt and kill as we all celebrate
What makes America and Boston, Mass so great.
I struggled hard with writing this because I'm sure that I will miss
The most important thing about this tragic day.
My life's completely gone awry and I can barely see the light
But this little boy reminded me to pray.
Although my Faith is not religious, my Higher Power's not fictitious
'Cause the greatest wisdom comes from mouths of babes.

There's a picture of this child holding his drawing as he smiles
The crayon scribbled words should hang from every steeple.
He wrote the words "No more hurting people"
Peace is all we need. Every color, race, and creed.
If we all harder to love we just might see.
That our children are the ones who hold the key
To everything we spend our lifetimes hoping to reach

Boston's been my home, the place I came into my own, with my brothers (in) RDO
I studied mass communications with one very simple hope.
I dreamed to one day make a mark, and to perhaps ignite a spark
By simply sharing every feelings from my heart.
Don't always know what to say, or how to communicate
Exactly what it is I try hard to convey.
But one day it dawned upon me to express myself in songs (see)
So here's another one I hope keeps Boston strong.

Little Martin said, "No more hurting people -- mentally, spiritually, or physically why can't we see.

Boston you're my home, yeah you'll always be my home, no matter where I roam, I'll always hold you closely as my own. Let's let Martin lead the way, 'cause he cannot die in vain so I plead with you today, think of Boston and the Richards as you pray. Let's let Martin lead the way because he will not die in vain, think of Boston and the Richards as you pray. It starts TODAY.
