Years ago when I first read this post and saw this video clip of a musician from Iraq who played and moved to tears soldiers in the very ground where a major bomb had exploded … it moved me deeply and it moves me beyond words still.
Salute to the Power of Human Spirit.
Strength to defy & dare destiny in the face
Of danger destruction and devastation …
Comes from a deeper conviction that creates
Courage to rise beyond catastrophes …
The heart has the capacity to deal
with almost anything … as that is how our life is
wired to cope and heal.
Expressing through Arts is a power within us.
In empathy with care compassion
It is an act of kindness in realization of the oneness.
That what hurts you is actually eventually hurting me …
Your pain is my pain
In conscious awareness
I can help you heal
Your troubles away in faith
And hope for a better tomorrow for us all.
