I was thinking about how different our lives have become over the years and two things really weigh heavy on my mind. Both say a lot about our journey but are completely different so they deserve though own threads.
I want first to talk about music and how important it has been in our lives.
Every group of people in every country has some form of music. Music is used for a variety of situations and is often used as a tool as well as for personal enjoyment.
Yet music is something that is no longer taught. Most music programs in schools have been dropped; they claim because of lack of funds, but I wonder.
Even if a school does have a music program it is usually just a small band with the students given the option to learn to play the basic of instruments.
Try to find a school that offers children the option to learn to play the cello, the violin, the harp, the French horn, the oboe, the bassoon, etc.
I know that a schools can’t provide instruction in every instrument known to man but what happened to “teaching” the love of “making” music.
Our children are tethered to tiny electronic boxes that play music but they are passive participants.
It seems that the popularity of Guitar Hero would show us that are children want to be more than passive music listeners that they “want” to be active participants in the world of music but their choices are limited.
Why are we letting the music die?

A huuuuuuuGE part of my life! I couldn't imagine life without music!
I don't think music will ever die. Global Dominance could maybe suppress it, but I don't see an end 2 it. People will always hum.....or bang on a drum. Even if it did die, it would resurrect.
Maybe they'll end Country Music tho
