I had the privilege of having a meal with three WWII vets, one of which is my dad, and the other two who were combatants and survivors of the Battle of the Bulge. The one theme that kept surfacing from the two was "Why not me?" They had seen some really gruesome stuff, and some of their comrades were killed in places where they had just been, or right next to them. That haunted me, and I had heard about that type of feeling before, but never first hand. This song was a result of that meeting.
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. John 15:13
"Why Not Me?" was recognized as a +Honorable Mention (Deserves special recognition) in the 2022 SongDoor International Songwriting Competition for the Soft Rock category.
