Because the Western Plains Children’s Choirs wanted and deserved a final time to sing together and in appreciation and honor of our graduating seniors, the WPCC and Western Plains Opera Company offer the following song that “resounds so strong.” It brings “a message of mercy and Hope for Broken Wings.”
