Just because a man lacks the use of his eyes doesn’t mean he lacks vision. – Stevie Wonder

Fairly straight forward quote but I think it runs deeper than intended. Just because someone lacks use of whatever or can’t do something doesn’t mean they are lacking. In this case use of eyes lacks vision, not true, lacks hearing, can’t listen, lacks use of legs doesn’t mean you can’t get around, just because you lack some ability doesn’t make you useless. Many people judge people on their disability, race, religion or other things and you shouldn’t judge someone by their IQ or lack of IQ. People have the capability to change lives and shouldn’t be overlooked by any of these things or how much or how little money you have. It may be hard not to judge and we all have from time to time but we should try to look past mental illness, disability, age, race, religion to see people for who they are.

Music is a world within itself, with a language we all understand. – Stevie Wonder

All of my life music has been something I’ve been drawn to to use in times of sadness and grief and happiness. Music has been something whether it’s the music itself or the lyrics, sometimes both that has helped me through many things in my life. It connects us. If one has ever attended a concert …here are some I’ve attended: Smashing Pumpkins, Kiss, Quiet Riot, Garth Brooks in Central Park, Elvis Costello, Bon Jovi, Silverchair, Black 47, Pop Evil, Toadies, Sonic Boom (which featured Greta Van Fleet, Pretty Reckless, All That Remains, Beartooth) and Ann Wilson of Heart. One that experiences being at a concert, feeling the energy from the audience, hearing all those people sing along to the songs knows that not only are the artists touched by the music but the music is a language that speaks directly to the masses.
