Imagine sitting in your high school classroom on Valentine’s Day, when suddenly you hear gunshots on the floor above you in your younger sibling’s classroom. How powerless would you feel? Sam Zeif pleaded with President Trump, face to face, a week after the Parkland, Florida massacre of 14 of his classmates. He felt the President showed no empathy. Months later, Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul, and Mary called a dozen activist songwriters to help him mentor the musical students of Parkland to speak their hearts in songs of power and protest. “Song for the Silenced” calls up the souls of classmates who missed the chance to grow up.
