I wanted to share a song I wrote about 10 years ago. I was a sophomore in high school and did a persuasive speech on the pro-life stance (I blew the pro-Choice POV out of the water naturally be sticking to the facts). After writing the speech I couldn’t get the things I had read out of my head and eventually they turned into this song.
As God would have it I was a substitute teacher at the very school I graduated from 6 years later and found myself in a Senior projects class where Seniors choose a project to do to make a difference their last year in high school. I was helping the students and noticed on was having some trouble. I asked her if she had chosen a topic, she said she had but her teachers wouldn’t help her on it. She wanted to do a pro-life speech for the freshman class. I took about half an hour working with her to help her understand the advantages of approaching the subject from a scientific and developmental perspective and encouraged her to avoid using emotion ploys. Being a psychology major I had a few books I recommended for her as well. I wasn’t in the class again that semester but rather took a long term position in a drama class but God blessed me in a way I never expected. The last day of the semester the girl walked in and thanked me for encouraging her and told me she got an A in the course. This was the one case I accepted a hug from a student and it’s still the thing I remember the most fondly from my two years subbing.
Anyways sorry about the long story, here is the song;
Please forgive the “glam rock” parts. I’m currently adjusting the song for my new band.
If you have a song or know of one please add it to the list.
