Boston Marathon tragedy from a 9-year-old's view

Just a little over one month ago, bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon and shook us all to the core. It is very difficult for adults to make sense of that tragedy, much less children.

A 9-year-old Little Kids Rock student named Ashley wrote a song called “Marathon,” offering a perspective with wisdom that is far beyond her young age.

Little Kids Rock is fortunate to be able to give children like Ashley a creative conduit to articulate the things that happen in their worlds... and in everyone's world.

Music changes children. Children change the world.


Your Friends in Music,
Little Kids Rock
