The women were preparing a meager breakfast of soft-boiled yams...
... the men were guarding the perimenter of the family groups...
... some with guns and some with knives, others with nothing more than bamboo poles.
Children were sitting around their mothers.
My mother remembers a moment of stillness...
... before the smell of guns...filled the air...
...children ran after people they thought were their parents...
The men tried to protect the women and children with their arms.
They knew there would be no fighting back.
Jagged pieces of broken mountain rained on them.
The earth blew up in their faces.
When the bullets started to fly and people were running in fear, my mother walked...
This to my father showed courage...

“I sang the piece many times, always focusing on the notes and timing. I realized it was a powerful piece, but it was not until I gave myself over to the music that I felt its full impact. Tension began to rise in my body as the moments of silence occurred, then intensity built and I began to cry and to literally feel my body tightening...” - J. Bacon, singer, Global Harmony
