This Is Who We Are: a photo essay of UUAC by Christopher J. Gaffney June 11, 2015 / By UUAC May 31, 2015 Make Music From What Remains And Baby Dedication: “Every child begins the world again.” ~Henry David Thoreau “This has been my vocation.. my lifelong mission to make music out of what remains.” Itzhak Perlman This is our mission, our vocation.. to make music… from what remains.. from what you’ve got left… from what still works. Welcome! We are so glad you are here! We will promise to love him unconditionally.. to give him a sense of wonder.. and adventure. To share with him.. joy and laughter.. to teach him kindness and friendship.. show him the beauty the world is made of. To guide, respect and protect him. We will promise to care for him. Give us the spirit of a child… The child who trusts and imagines.. the child who gives and receives without reservation or judgement.
