For those of you at Remembrance Day, you may have met and talked with Michela Miller Ferree, an Artist in Residence at the Gettysburg National Battlefield. She was so moved by sharing our intimate gathering at the monument, that she composed this song. She forwarded the song to our captain with this wonderful sentiment.
“…I just wanted to say thank you again for inviting me to observe this afternoon. I was expecting a wreath laying or something, I had no idea I’d get to witness something so intimate. It was very touching and I really felt honored to be there. The friendship and brotherhood that are so obvious between all of you was very inspiring. If I manage to write all of you a song, I’ll be sure to send it to you. I also checked out the link to some of your sculptures. Your work is really beautiful. If you’re interested in hearing any of my songs, there are a few at www.reverbnation.com/michelamiller. I’ll be posting a lot of the songs I write for the residency on facebook at facebook.com/ferreedom as well. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you, once again. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!”

Thank you Michela!
