In light of the tragic events that took place in Paris late last week, I think it’s a good time to post one of the all time greatest songs and also one of the most inspirational. This song goes perfectly well with what’s going on in the world right now with all the conflict and tension everywhere.

 

This isn’t me trying to act like I’m making a difference by writing this blog, because I’m not. I’m not going to click a button and make my profile picture the French flag and give myself a false sense of accomplishment because there’s absolutely nothing I can do to help these people that lost their loved ones in Paris. But what I can do is remind people how powerful music is and why we all listen to it. All I ask is that when you listen to this song today think about those in Paris and everyone affected by this. For example, this lyric from the song:

“Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…”

This lyric just stood out to me because it’s so simple, yet impossible to attain. The world can be an awful place, but music is one of the only things that we all have in common. Pray for Paris and don’t take anything in this world for granted…
