Music for the Soul
Music for the Soul
So I have something to say.
I am obsessed with Angels and Airwaves. I can't stop listening to their music and reading interviews and thinking about them. I love it. I still get goosebumps and my eyes still well up with tears on some of their songs.
I have been reading interviews with Tom Delonge. In one he basically said that he feels that he has been put on this earth for a purpose. Call it a messiah complex, having a big head, thinking too much about himself, or whatever.
I call it awesome.
He thinks he can make the world a better place. He thinks he can impact the world. Scratch that, he knows. And he has.
For one, he has impacted me. For years I have listened to his music, I have all of the cds he has ever put out with Blink 182, Boxcar Racer, and now Angels and Airwaves. The music and the message have been there for me when it felt that no one else was.
But on to my main point. Why can't I make this world a better place? Why can't I leave my mark on this world?
I've thought about changing the world and that seems impossible. So the next logical step down would to be changing people's lives. That is do-able.
If I can make other people's lives better just think how better this world could be. I don't know if any one has ever seen the movie "Pay it Forward" or not but that is my plan. From what I remember of the movie it is based on a little boy that has a theory of if he can do something nice for one person, that person would turn around and do a nice thing for three other people and the chain would keep going. If people would do something for some one else imagine how much better this would could be.
Last night while I was driving back from Lazbuddie I got to thinking about how I could touch other people's lives and that got me to thinking about how other people have touched mine. I could sit and write all day about how my friends and family have been there for me and how they have gone above and beyond what people should do. I love them for that.
They have been my wailing wall, my support structures, my laughter, my tears, my life. Thank you.
Maybe I can repay the favor. Maybe I already have. Maybe the things that I do in return are small and maybe the are big.
In closing I would just like to thank everyone that has come and gone in my life: My friends, my family, my acquaintances, and my enemies. You are the people that have made me who I am today and I love it.
Maybe I can make this world a better place. Maybe we can do it together.
Maybe this is the day the revolution will begin.
