PROGRAM NOTES
My Beautiful Town
Music & Lyrics by Jim Allyn
Through the long winter night
we shall lift up this light
lift our hearts with every voice
through the dark and moving forth
there's a path to be found
holy ground

There are signs along the way
there is music to be played
and the air we breathe in
this is where we begin
there's no map but we are bound
on holy ground

My Beautiful Town
My Beautiful Town

Let the snow fall again
I'll be with you my friend
and though slowly comes the spring
time will turn and time will bring
bring us all, all around,
holy ground

My Beautiful Town
My Beautiful Town

PROGRAM
THE SANDY HOOK PROMISE

Our hearts are broken;
Our spirit is not.

And it is with this knowledge
that we are able to move forward
with purpose…and strength…

This is a Promise
To support our own
our families, our neighbors, our teachers,
our community
with dedication and love
as well as the material and financial needs
they will require
in the days ahead.

This is a Promise
To truly honor the lives lost
by turning our tragedy into a moment
of transformation.

This is a Promise
To be open to all possibilities.
There is no agenda other than to make
our community and our nation a safer,
better place.

This is a Promise
To have the conversations on ALL the issues.
Conversations where listening is as important
as speaking.
Conversations where even those with the most
opposing views
can debate in good will.

This is a Promise
To turn the conversation into actions.
Things must change.
This is the time.

This is a Promise
We make to our precious children.
Because each child, every human life is filled
with promise,
and though we continue to be filled
with unbearable pain
we choose love, belief, and hope
instead of anger.

This is a Promise
To do everything in our power to be remembered
not as the town filled with grief and victims;
but as the place where real change began.

Our hearts are broken;
Our spirit is not.

This is our promise


Proceeds from the sale of this disc will benefit the Sandy Hook Elementary School families and their community through Sandy Hook Promise, a non-profit organization.
