The choir will be performing “I Ask for One Day,” encouraging us all to come together to work for a peaceful future—with lyrics written by a 7th grade student. They will also be performing “I Have a Voice” to share the message that all voices matter, have strength, and have a song to sing.                                                                              TRIUMP OVER TRAUMA Abby Huffman, a sophomore at The Ohio State University (originally from Cambridge, Ohio), will be briefly presenting on how “school and a caring English teacher” helped her survive a very traumatic childhood.
