“You don’t leave a person behind in war, and you don’t leave a baby behind in the womb.” Marty Stewart
Vera R. Scholtis grew up in Germany during the time of Hitler ( whom she actually saw). There she learned from her mother, a schooled artist, many of the fine technics of drawing. As a young girl she was appalled at the harsh disrespect of the Jews which were treated inhumanly, and often killed. Living through World War Two, was a living hell, as Hamburg, the port city where she lived, got some of the worst bombing, especially toward the end of the war.

Statement by Joni Eareckson Tada
On “Alone Yet Not Alone” Original Song
Oscar Nomination Being Rescinded
Agoura Hills, Calif., Jan. 30, 2014
“While I can only imagine the disappointment of music writer Bruce Broughton and lyricist Dennis Spiegel in the rescinding of their Oscar nomination, it in no way detracts from either the song’s beauty or its message. I was humbled and honored to have been asked to sing it for the film, and was as surprised as anyone when I learned of the song’s nomination.
“I was grateful for the attention the nomination brought to this worthy song and the inspirational film behind it, as well as to the ongoing work of Joni and Friends to people affected by disabilities. The decision by the Academy to rescind the nomination may well bring even further attention, and I only hope it helps to further extend the message and impact of the song.
“Regarding the reasons for the nomination being rescinded, it is not my place to speculate as I have no insights into the workings of the entertainment industry. I was honored to be invited to sing the song and it will always be a treasured experience.”
