Some of the most encouraging sights coming out of this pandemic are the videos of people in Europe singing to each other, playing instruments, and using music to get through isolation. As I have watched many of them I can’t help but think how important music will be for us in the coming weeks.

Music calms us, excites us, it communicates where speech comes up short. It can remind us where our hope is found. It is central to our existence and it will get us through.

While Europe has balconies, in the States we have backyards. So crank the music (at appropriate hours mind you!) Sing to your neighbors, serenade the streets.

We will get through this together and our soundtrack is vitally important.
