Salina South Middle Guitar Performance

Good Day Kansas

“When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we see
No I won’t be afraid
No I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me….”

These words mean so much right now as we are all experiencing difficult times due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. I was elated to be joined by three members of the Salina South Middle School Guitar Class who sang these words and shared a bit of hope and joy during these tough times. Rian, Carson and Emily are a part of the middle school guitar class taught by Matt Gerry. Mr Gerry was determined to persevere through the challenge of the stay at home order and challenged his students to record themselves performing the song ‘Stand By Me‘ the song the group was working on prior to spring break. He had all of the studnets send in their performances and he compiled them to make this breathtaking performance. The children all performed alone, from their homes, but on the screen they were playing and singing together. What a powerful representation of the world we are living in right now. I was moved by this performance and the children’s ability to remain postive and grateful for their music. I hope these children and the efforts on Mr Gerry made you smile a bit and reminded you that we are all in this together and we will stand together, alone for now, but together, at home.
