Blades of Grass.....

In honor of the upcoming Veterans Day holiday, I solemnly submit this moving piece. It was written as a tribute to our fallen heroes by Senator Orrin Hatch. While I may not agree with his politics, I respect his musical talents and as the child of a veteran, I am thankful for this piece. Our daughter, Shelby, performed this selection with the West Middle School chorus during part of their Veteran's Day program. This weekend, and on Monday in particular, let us take a moment to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our freedom and let us be thankful for them and their families.

God rest their souls.

I just love (^) Steve Amerson's overly emotive and sickeningly pretentious vocal delivery. The words and music are fabulous, though, despite Hatch's role. The WMS chorus was great too...naturally;)
