It’s hard to stay positive and upbeat when you are constantly bombarded by so much sadness in the world. Murders, wars, terrible calamities such as plane crashes, natural disasters like floods and fires become constant fare in the daily news. It’s enough to make you want to crawl into your bed and pull the covers over your head.
I came across this uplifting story on my Yahoo feed. I’m always drawn to homeless stories and have even written a few short stories about them.
I was so touched by the story of this poor soul in Sarasota, Florida. A gifted musician who had many setbacks in his life, his life started on a downward spiral after the death of his wife and he ended up living on the streets.
Here is the link to the story about him. Sarasota Homeless Man Plays Piano
So uplifting to read about how he’s getting a second chance at a better life and to listen to his music.
Music is so powerful how it can connect us, despite boundaries of class, race, language, or nationality. Inspiring!
