Sitting here in Halifax on my first day off on this tour, I am taken with the charge to do good in the world. I don’t think it is just the sun, or being sated from the meal I just consumed, but a calling I am feeling more and more every day. To bring beauty and melody, but also to climb a mountain for the sake of humanity. I am one of the fortunate. I was born to a good home, with a loving family. I have food and drink and a bed to sleep in. My chosen career brings money to to pay the bills and plan for a future. I am not fighting wars. No ancient combatant is at my door. I do not search for the basic needs of life upon waking. Maslow was met. Water flows from my tap whenever I want.
I and others like me, owe it to the world to fight for change for the less fortunate.
This is a wake up call. As Ghandi said “Be the change”.
Give and you shall receive so much more.
