I believe in music. Music sets me free. It doesn’t matter if I’m playing music or listening to it, music always evoked emotions in me. Isn’t that why people listen to music? I believe in music almost like it is my religion. I turn to music for advice, and for comfort. I turn to music to celebrate, and to mourn. Music brings people together. Music started a great revolution in the 1960’s, and even though I didn’t live through it, when I listen to certain songs from the era I’m taken there. In my eyes anything that can still bring people together, even in such chaotic times as now capable of revolutionizing human kind, should be shared and enjoyed by everyone everywhere and to me that is divine.
