Program Notes

It is a great honor to write and dedicate a piece to the Bowling Green State University and their Wind Symphony. I write this in a spirit of friendly comradeship, for the cause we all have at heart. It is a piece written for the Heartland, but it is also written for America.

America is unlike any other nation on earth, and Americans are exceptional. They vote and pay taxes. They serve in our military. They are united against a common foe.

But terrorists and extremists have gathered strength and spread to every region of the earth, and endanger people with the most destructive weapons known to humanity.

We need to protect ourselves and our freedom. Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction.

These radicalized masterminds continue to threaten our freedoms and attack our brave soldiers. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who were affected.

Never Forget. Never Remember.
