Yesterday, we saw the third anniversary of the Parkland School Shootings. On 14th February, 2018, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz gunned down 17 students and staff at his former school,

Why a Song Against Gun Violence?

Alex believes that people who do these terrible things are not bad people. They are just caught up in society. Cruz lost both parents a couple of years before the massacre.

In this post, we review Magic Dandelion by Alex Genadinik. This is an anti-gun, anti-mass shooting song that promotes peace among all people wherever and whoever they may be.
