We need David Archuleta’s voice in this crazy world…
He brings out the best in us, joy, love, life, but most of all hope. Listening to his songs reminds me of all that is good in this world… and some days I need reminding more than others.
I know David isn’t magic … or superhuman… or powered by angel wings… but his music sure is. And boy do we ever need it now more than ever. At least I do.
And not just to sugarcoat the tough times or anesthetize us against the world’s ugliness… although that’s not such a bad thing sometimes… but to help us remember we’re not alone, that we’re only human and all trying to put one foot in front of the other on the up and down elevator of life (sorry, couldn’t resist :) ).
Like all beautiful, life-affirming works of joy, his music needs to be shared, celebrated and embraced en masse… not that it will cure the world’s ills but it can certainly make them easier to bear. I’m convinced that every time he sings, someone somewhere feels healed in some way. That is a remarkable gift and I feel so grateful for it.
Peace be with you all … hug those you love, and maybe especially those you don’t.
Here’s what I felt like listening to today, how about you?
