Purple Songs Can Fly....





I just read a great article about a well known pianist and singer from Texas who has made a difference in the lives of children with cancer. The article was in Family Circle July 2008 and some of you may have read it.



I went a step further and visited the website, http://www.purplesongscanfly.org/ Here is a wonderful example of what one person can do when they set their minds to it.


Children with cancer have so much on their minds and hearts while going through treatments. Anita Kruse is helping children with cancer express themselves in music. What a wonderful idea. Wouldn't it be grand if we had a music program like this one in every children's hospital in every state.



Not only do these kids get to make music and write lyrics, they can record their songs on CD's and some of them are played in airplanes for passengers. One of the CD's went on the shuttle, Discovery with astronaut Scott Parazynski. Now that is pretty cool.


Check out these photos from the website and visit http://www.purplesongscanfly.org/ for more information.


Then follow your own heart and see if you can make a difference in the lives of children in some small way.
