Before you read another word PLEASE, PLEASE watch these two short videos. They are just about five minutes each.
If you have been reading my blog for a while you are aware of the power that music plays in my life. I could write my life in song. I’m sure most everybody must feel the same way.
These videos are not just about music. They are also about the debt we, as a society, owe the aged. Some people believe that sometimes people just out live there usefulness or their ability to contribute to society in any way has come and gone.
These tend to be people who are so caught up in their own lives that they would truly rather not be bothered. I’m not saying that everyone should quit work and make an unreasonable commitment that would lead to financial ruin. What I’m saying is that there are so many of us who cannot give those few hours a week or a weekend to be a part of the lives to the people that help make us the people we are today.
And if you want to believe that they can contribute nothing to society then stop and examine…deeply… the emotions you felt while watching those two videos. If you can honestly tell me you didn’t want to clap and give a big WooHoo for Gladys and you didn’t want to sing with Henry then I can honestly tell you that you are dead on the inside and there is nothing REAL that you can contribute to society or that you are a true sociopath.
…He’s got the whole world…
