Statement from Songwriter Debra Holloway:
"Kathie Briggs asked me to write a song especially for Kelsey. Kathie told me, "I can't tell you what to say in the song, but I'll know it when I see it." I emailed her several ideas; she would send responses such as, "keep working on it." One day, when I had emailed her the idea that Lance was fighting for the red, white, and blue and Kelsey is fighting for the black and blue, Kathie's excited email response was, "Don't stop! You're hitting the nail on the head!" Kathie worked with me on every single word of this song, so I felt it only appropriate to list her as co-writer on the copyright. I've often struggled with the titles to my songs; I remember as a teenager asking my Mom to help me "name this song." For lack of a better idea, I had called this new song "Lance and Kelsey's Song". Last winter, Kathie asked me what I thought of calling it, "A Soldier's Child (Lance and Kelsey's Story)", which I felt was perfect! Kathie Briggs, thank you for working with me on this project. I hope that this song promotes patriotism and I pray that it is a positive influence in our work to prevent other children's abuse."
