About This Song


Written and produced and performed by me. American student Otto Warmbier died today after suffering at the hands of his North Korean captors for 17 months. I was outraged and as a songwriter I felt I would write and produce this song for his family and Americans in general.

Feedback Requested


Was it worth the time? Does it touch anyone? Will it see the light of day? But all that really doesn't matter... it is my gift to the Warmbier family.

Thanks for sharing this song. Such a sad story, Robert. Being what it is, who knows if something like this would ever see the light of day. But was it worth it? Yes. If it helped you process this, if it helps someone else process this event, then it’s worth it.
