After a lot pandemic and a lot distance between folks what’s the message you wish to ship?

“The happiness of your life relies on the standard of your ideas,” mentioned the thinker emperor Marcus Aurelius.

I want to inform folks this: don’t be distressed by the pictures you see on tv, by the stuff you hear on the radio that solely and solely serve to decrease your important state.

Allow us to search for the wonder that all the time exists and give attention to that.

It’s essential to suggest magnificence to show mutual respect and therefore self-respect to kids and adults. We’re a part of a neighborhood and may solely be completely happy if we study to acknowledge and respect one another. That’s the reason I wrote this music: to rejoice the worth of reciprocity. We’re companions in a typical mission known as society. So many have completely misplaced these references and the communities stagger within the darkness of ignorance, folks dwell with out realizing the wonder and privilege of being alive. When the eyes of the soul are closed, one is like blind within the night time.
