Music...no monetary value, no matter how large, can be placed on how important music is to the human race. Music can bridge most any gap in society from generation to current affairs.
Music can activate emotions and motivate actions that sometimes words can never achieve.
Music can bring peace and contentment to tortured souls and patriotism to cause.
Those fortunate, who share the gift of putting notes and chords together through various instruments (no matter what level) gain a sense of accomplishment that warms the soul and a feeling of belonging to an honored society.
Music...the international language of expression, from the first sticks banging on rocks to the contributions of today, will always be a glowing part of our lives...
