Last night I got a message from a 19 year old soldier who was hours away from going into battle in Gaza. He told me he was a fan and asked me to listen to his music and the whole thing was so immensely real and humbling. I asked if I could share his message and a song of his which I really liked and he agreed. War is an awful and terrifying thing, and it’s important to remember that the people out fighting aren’t the soulless faceless killers the news portrays them as. They are kids with good hearts, and passions just like everyone else, and the more we recognize that we as humans are all carved from the same stone, the closer we get to living in a place where we can create something beautiful together.
Thanks to everyone and send a thought to this kid, as he’s having a harder day than most of us right now.
Check out his track if you have some time, it’s quite nice:
