We're tickling the ivories with a Red Cross tune for this inaugural Throw Back Thursday post. Written by Nortier Simanungkalit, an Indonesian songwriter known for his hymns and marches, this National Capital Chapter composition highlights the key services of the Red Cross and the seven Fundamental Principles under which the organization operates.
Break out your keyboard and sing along with us!
Lyrics: American Red Cross, National Capital Chapter, led by volunteers. Works tirelessly twenty four hours a day. Provides disaster services; Health, safety and emergency services for the people. Allegiance to humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality. Teaches and improves peoples lives. Whenever and wherever people need help, Red Cross will be there. We are the first to arrive, and the last to leave. American Red Cross. We'll be there, we'll be there.
