The One Common Thread That Binds Us All As One…

 Music Is Our Heartbeat

I apologize for starting my blog on a negative note… I promise it won’t stay there for very long… I’m just using this platform as inspiration for my article & it will soon lead to a very positive message…

Every year I am drawn to each anniversary of The Terror Attacks of 911… No matter the distance from the actual event, I am annually appalled at man’s inhumanity to man including the prejudice, bigotry & sheer hatred of some… It always makes me wonder what these people were led to believe since it’s evident that this kind of bitterness must be taught at a pretty early age… Bono had it so right when he wrote in the words of one of his songs, “Man should no more be judged by the color of his skin than by the color of his eyes”…

What never fails to amaze me is while in the face of tragedy, all that seems to disappear… All at once, as if someone waved a magic wand, it seems like we can’t do enough to help each other… Hatred seems to melt away because it’s like those things are no longer important… Race, color, creed all seem to become invisible at a time when we all become one in our struggle for survival… Each year there are new stories of heroism & self sacrifice that are exposed that restores my faith in humanity…

All my life I have had an insatiable love for music… As much as I love diversity in my music, I also appreciate the diversity of people… I do believe that just like in music, the one beat that is the common thread that holds us together is our heartbeat… We each have one & that is the one common bond that makes us all as one…

I would like to share these videos with you & hopefully you will find the truth in my message to you…

This is my prayer, not only for our country, but for our world & the entire human race… John Lennon had it right when he wrote this song…
