Ode to Ukraine

I was watching the news, and seeing Ukrainians trying to board trains as well as those having to walk for miles down highways pulling suitcases and carrying their children. I saw lots of tears, confusion, and fear. How horrible it’s got to be, to be forced to leave your homes, your family, your husband, your son, your father. I was feeling helpless watching this mass exodus and decided I needed to write some music to express what I was watching. I’ve entitled it "Ode to Ukraine." Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    • Thank you. I hope it helps somehow.

  • Very sad and solemn music.

    I can visualize the terror and the sadness of what's happening in Ukraine.

    All the lives shattered, cities destroyed, homes, families, ...

    Pray for peace in Ukraine and the world.
