Song About Missing A Loved One Helps Kids Going Through Grief – WCCO
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A kid wanting to see his moms and dad one more time has actually motivated a tune that will assist other kids going through sorrow.
Jace and Emmy Lu Muller’s mom Amie passed away of cancer 4 years earlier. They’ve been going through sorrow therapy at school, through an unique program.
The tune “Ladder to the Sky” will assist others like them.
“It’s always been my go-to for getting through different times of life,” dad Brian Muller stated.
Brian Muller penned a tune, based upon a dream his kid Jace had about his mama.
“And then I woke up, and said that to Dad, ‘What if we could build a ladder to the sky so we could see mom whenever we wanted to,’” Jace Muller stated. “A way to see her again, somehow, someway, to go to Heaven to see her, even it was just for a moment.”
Amie Muller passed away in 2017 at age 36, following a brave fight with pancreatic cancer. The veteran raised issues about health results connected to burn pits she was exposed to while serving in Iraq. The influence on soldiers is being studied.
“He asks what we all want to know: ‘Why did she have to go?’ I can’t even say it without getting teary-eyed, because we all wonder that,” Brian Muller stated.
Their tune, “Ladder to the Sky,” will raise funds for a therapy program the 2 brother or sisters belong of at school. It’s called Growing Through Sorrow, sponsored by the Park Nicollet Structure.
“They go right to the schools, and they help kids with grief. The way this program was designed was to go into the schools to make it more comfortable for some type of therapy,” Brian Muller stated.
Therefore they hope the tune will assist others with their sorrow, while supporting kids who experience a loss in life.
“I was very happy that he made a song about it. I’m also very happy that he’s using it for good,” Jace Muller stated.
“I hope it will help people to know that, kind of metaphorically, there is a ladder to the sky. We can create a ladder to the sky in our minds, and talk to our loved ones whenever we want to, and think about them and dream about them,” Brian Muller stated.
Growing Through Sorrow is presently in 15 city and western Wisconsin schools. It’s supplied to trainees at no charge, thanks to contributions.
“Ladder to the Sky” is readily available to download now.
