Memories rushed back as I leafed through the pages, recalling my visits to local schools, sharing songs with children. Like children everywhere, they delighted in singing together and making their own illustrations with my limited supply of crayons. Given the severity of the censorship, perhaps this small collection was all that remained.
At that moment, I determined that somehow I would return the songs to the children of Afghanistan.
Having committed myself to this task, I was then faced with its implementation. The next four years were hectic. Simply copying my old songbook was not feasible. I madly engaged in fundraising to support the music production and a new book design. There were many moments when I questioned whether this project would ever really happen, but the incredible support from the Afghan community kept my spirits up. I consulted with Afghans I knew who lived in the United States and in Canada, continuously asking their advice.
After all, the songs were theirs—not mine. Two hundred Afghans attended the event. We should all be singing. I turned to face the crowd, moved by hearing their voices. What I witnessed made my heart stop.
Every person in that room was not only joyfully singing but each and every one had tears rolling down their cheeks. Musical memories had been restored, voices unleashed, the silence broken.
The Afghans in that room, while singing a simple childhood song, had made connections to their homeland and to memories far beyond what I could imagine. I had never experienced this kind of musical phenomenon, and it made a profound difference in my understanding of the transformative power that music has in all our lives. I, too, was moved to tears. In my two-month stay, I traveled to several schools and orphanages talking to many educators, administrators, parents, and children.
I returned from that trip with some major insights and new goals for the project.
I discovered that the reaction to hearing the songs was similar, no matter whether the listener was a soldier, taxi driver, parent, or teacher. The songs jogged memories and inspired stories, instantly connecting them to another time and place. The songs are in various ethnic languages—e. The music helped strengthen relationships between ethnic groups and build community, not only crossing but also breaking down boundaries.
I often visited schools where the children had no books at all and the songbook provided an invaluable educational resource. Who Is the Child? Sleep, Little Jesus. Oh, Hush Thee, My Baby. Picture a Christmas.

The program will start with a short introduction by Louise Pascale, who, as a United States Peace Corps volunteer in Afghanistan in the late s, was deeply moved by the beauty of Afghan music and poetry. The songbook project began in when Pascale, living in Kabul, was teaching English and music to elementary students.
In , 3, copies of the songbook, which was illustrated by local children, were published and distributed throughout Afghanistan. Assuming correctly that most of the other songbooks had disappeared during the years of civil strife and dislocations, she made a commitment to return the songs to the children of Afghanistan.
Jawad, Afghanistan Ambassador to the United States, heard about the project, memories of earlier times flooded back.
Ayenda: the Afghan Children Initiative, which she founded, provided Pascale with the funding necessary to further develop the songbook.
