To me, the most powerful and strongest force on this planet is music. It is border less to the many different languages in the world, and can connect foreign cultures to each other. From Kpop, instrumental, acoustic to rap and hip-hop, each person forms his or her own personal connection to whatever genre he or she wishes. Each experience can be powerful and inspiring, yet different for each. Around the world, the language of music itself remains the same. Although the instruments may differ, the notes created can be played around the world. There is a sense of community and togetherness that is created.
Music has taught me about different cultures, religions and languages. Music can connect the most different of people and help us break down the borders that separate us. Music has allowed me to meet new people who have felt the same. I have connected and meet people despite language barriers, and found people who enjoyed music from other languages.
In my personal experience, I started playing in band in the fourth grade. A little more than 10-years later, I still love to create music and drown myself in it. Although I might not be the most talented, music moves me in ways nothing else ever has. Music has connected to me on an emotional level, that help me feel, heal and focus. It has helped pulled me out of dark times, saving me from myself and the world around me. It allows for freedom. Feeling the emotion that music can bring is so inspiring and addicting. I will never be tired of the feeling.
I will never be able to fully express the emotion music can bring out of me and explain it to others. Some don't have a deep connection to music and it always stumps me when I try to explain it to them. It is hard to explain raw emotion and feeling. I have seen people break down under the power of music. I have seen others become connected by music. I have watched music move people to scream with passion and happiness. The power of music affects everyone, no matter how little. How does it affect you?
