This is a song I wrote especially for spreading awareness for anxiety, depression, mental illnesses, and suicide. These things are more common than you may think, and not all of us are aware of that. What we can do is immerse ourselves into learning about these things so that we can learn what to do, should a serious situation occur. Stop the stigma before it's too late. Who knows, you could be that one person to make the biggest difference of all. The song is called "It Only Takes One."

It only takes one to make a difference

Only one to spread the light

One chance to make things better

Or turn the wrongs all right

It only takes one to break the silence

Only one to take a stand

One voice that speaks with kindness

One person to lend a hand

It only takes one


Sittin’ on the stairs, on the bed, on the floor

Crying out those tears ‘cause you’re hurt to the core

Thoughts in your head and words that they say

Make it more difficult each and every day

Starin’ out the window, gazing into space

Wishing all this pain could just be erased

Screaming out for help, drowning inside


Hoping for just one person to save your life

Walking along with your head in the clouds

But what do you see when you look towards the ground

Tear-stained cheeks and a face gone red

Scars on the wrist from pain that spread

Look in their eyes, can you see that they’re afraid

Wishing all their pain could just go away

Screaming out for help, they’re drowning inside

Hoping for just one person to save your life


It only takes one to make things alright

It only takes one for hope to be in sight

It only takes one to share the light within

It only takes one for the end to begin...again

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
