Lakeland student composes 9/11 song

Lakeland, FL -- Derik Thomas, a student at Harrison School of the Arts, was asked earlier this week by his piano teacher and Dr. Collins at the Harrison School for the Arts to compose a special song in commemoration of the 10th Anniversary of Sept. 11.  

It's a song about a son who lost his dad and his mom can't emotionally bear the weight of it all so he's left to fight on his own.

The school approached him about the idea on Tuesday which onlt gave him couple of days to write it and compose the music!
