Dear Students, Faculty and Administrators:

Our hearts went out to you on April 16. So much so, one of our band members and fellow songwriter's had to react to this. We wanted to write a song that did justice to what had happened but in a way as to show hope for a better day. Please listen to the CD sample, look at the artwork and lyrics. Visit our website to read the whole story as to how Mike Clapper wrote the lyrics to this.

We had already written a song for our troops but had not recorded it. We went ahead and recorded both songs on Friday May 11th. I hope these songs will pay tribute to both the students that are gone and the students and everyone else that have survived. We will gladly collect and forward proceeds from any sales of this CD to the fund that you have established. This CD is not yet released in hard copy but the digital songs are released on internet radio stations

We are just a local band called KUN-TAJUS (contagious) from Bedford, Pa and have been playing for 43 years (we're almost as old as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones so we all have children of college age) We have other songs that we have written and recorded, plus other finished songs that are not yet recorded. We are 5 hrs. North of Blacksburg so maybe someday we could come down and play a concert for the students.

Our website is www.kun-tajus.com

Sincerely,
Chad Patterson
