(we'd love to hear from you)
If you are a SURVIVOR of child abuse, all of the ambassadors at Day of the Child would like to reach out and honor you with this new anthem. Or perhaps you have a friend or family member who survived child abuse. If so, please tell them about this new anthem and that we sincerely care about them and wish them true healing.
We've been working on producing this anthem for over two years now and we're proud to finally bring it to you as another way to find victory in survivorship. The anthem is part of Richard Klender's new CD, 'RAIN'. Richard is the songwriter/producer of the 1987 hit song, "Dear Mr. Jesus", also available on this site. Many adult-survivors have been asking him, for years, to write another anthem and this is the first song he has written about child abuse since then. Whether it affects you personally or if you can empathize with someone you know who has survived child abuse, we are confident it will bring comfort and offer you victory in survivorship. We hope you enjoy the new anthem and the related music video.
All proceeds from the sale of "Survivor" will help support our foundation, Day of the Child. Thanks for your continued support.
