For The Innocent by Grayson Hugh published on 2013/11/17 17:50:32 +0000 Grayson Hugh wrote "For The Innocent" for his grandfather, Dr. Frank Rawlinson, a missionary in China, who, Life Magazine reported, was one of the first few civilian casualties of Word War II. In August 1937 Grayson's mother Jean, aged 14 at the time, was in the car with her parents in downtown Shanghai when a Chinese plane, fearing attack from the Japanese, accidentally dropped one of its bombs onto the city. Dr. Rawlinson was killed instantly. Jean and her mother were forced to return to the States in a matter of days. This song is from Grayson Hugh's second album "Road To Freedom". Grayson's dedication for this song reads "For my grandfather, Dr. Frank Rawlinson, and all the other countless lives lost in war".
