Launching Paper Cranes

After the 2004 tsunami that wreaked havoc and devastation on the people of Indonesia,  Myles Crawley wrote and recorded the song  Launching Paper Cranes. He asked me to add keyboards, my daughter Alana to add flute, and the whole family to sing backup vocals on the recording; it was a great way to make sense of the sadness we felt.   In light of recent events, our family offers this for free download as a memorial for the people of Japan.  We also hope that it acts as a renewed memorial for all those in the world who have fallen victim to disasters of all kinds:  natural disasters, terrorism, war, corporate neglect, environmental destruction, hate crimes… the list goes on and on.

I would like to add my own spin to the downloads that come from this site (and I have no way to track this, so it’s Scout’s Honor all the way):  if you like the song and download it, can you please donate a minimum of $1.00 US (or the international equivalent) to the American Red Cross (if you can afford it- if you can’t, please just download the song and send good vibes to Japan!!!).
