It’s been quite some time since the last post and to be completely honest I’ve started debating myself on a topic of music saving lives.
It all started after the attack in Manchester. Even though I am not a die hard Ariana Grande fan, it hit me, like anyone else in the world. Music was always an escape and a concert venue a safe and good place to have fun, sing along, dance and be yourself, creating memories. Shattering this image was not ok, what’s happening in the world is not ok. Not London, not even fires, that consume all those lives. That’s why I was so glad to watch One Love Manchester benefit concert.
I can’t hold tears while watching the official video for Bridge Over Troubled Water recorded by Artists for Grenfell, to help those in need, who lost everything during the Greenfell fire.
Coming back to a question, if music does save lives, it definitely helps in connecting people and comforting each other, but to make a difference, we need to stand together, not because we have to, but because we want to.
