(RNN) - Over the past week, Americans all across the country have been moved to support the victims of the Boston Marathon any way they can.
When Connecticut music teacher and avid runner Derek Waldron heard about the attack, he poured his feelings into a heartfelt and yet hopeful tribute to the victims. The song is called I Will Runand already has more than 3,500 views on YouTube.
In an interview with WFSB, Waldron said he felt a close connection to what happened because he and his father had always dreamed of running in the Boston Marathon together.
"It is so sad to me that such a positive event for all involved can be turned into something so horrific by the hands of another human being. No matter what though, you can't be held down, or held back, because strength is in all of our hearts," Waldron wrote on his YouTube page.
You can download I Will Run for free and listen to samples of Waldron's music on his Reverbnation page.

This year's Bonnaroo is going to be one wicked festival, with acts from Paul McCartney, Mumford & Sons, Bjork, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, R. Kelly, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men and Wilco.
In preparation for the main event, Noisetrade has compiled a free sampler of 14 slightly lesser-known bands who will be performing. Before you pack up your tent and load the car, get familiar with the likes of Lord Huron, Glen Hansard, Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors, Sea Wolf and more. We admit, we'll probably have this list on repeat until June 13. It's that good.
Bonnaroo takes place from June 13 to 16 in Manchester, TN. While you're giving the sampler a listen, you can head on over to Bonnaroo's website for the full lineup and ticket information.
