BEING A FRIEND
This song was from among a number of children’s songs created in conjunction with the “Unifying Ohio for Peace” initiative in 1988. I was fortunate enough to be one of the organizers as, amid the controversy over the nuclear arms race, we created, in cooperation with the governor’s office, a week of peace celebrating through the visual and performing arts what we were for rather than against. “Alice in Blunderland” a musical written by myself and my brother Tim was also widely performed by many casts across Ohio. ( You can watch a video of the production on Youtube) The accompaniment track in the sample performance was produced by my brother Denis.
