I'm going to be trying something new for this blog. Every Monday I am going to post lyrics to a song that I find has a great message or meaning. Music has always been something I enjoy and helps me to relax. When I was in sixth grade and on a ventilator, my mom brought in a small radio into my hospital room. Even though I couldn't hear the music, she turned it on and tuned it to my favorite station; Camel Country 108. The nurses told my parents how nice it was to walk into a hospital room and hear some upbeat music. They said having the music playing gave my room personality; it showed my personality even when I couldn't.
Music can touch us all in so many different ways. It can inspire us, make us smile, make us want to dance and can even make us cry. Music can speak the words that we are thinking and feeling even when we can't. It is one of the few thing that can unite us all despite our differences. Whether it is country, pop or rock; music has made an impact in all of our lives.
Here is a country song that has made a positive impact in my life. I first heard this song on the radio a few years ago and now whenever I give a talk about bullying, I sign this song to the students.
"Don't Laugh at Me"
