Kate Marie Robbins does a nice job putting these stories together and out in the public to be shared.
I give Declan Kaba much credit and love for writing Same Love, an ode to Makelmore and Ryan Lewis' song. It takes inner strength to share vulnerabilities and open up to the public, let alone to your family. Kudos.
Anything But County by Andrea L. Staum is a touching story that reminds us to always keep an open mind. How true that is! In music and in everything else...
Shine by Lauren Hartley reminds us how music is always there for us. No. Matter. What. Sometimes if it wasn't for music our world would turn dark. What a beautiful dedication!
The Heart Of Rock And Roll by Julie Young is something most of us music lovers can relate to though most of us are not as dedicated or motivated. Here's to the band Heart and to all of us who dream big.
"...but when you have to grow up quickly, something dies inside. You don't strive for anything better because deep down inside, you don't believe you deserve it."
Music Expresses by Melissa Anderson is a story of a teenager moving in the wrong direction. Through all the hardship it seems music has had an impact in turning it all around. Nicely told.
In Yourself by Taren Paige is beautiful poetic piece that was an uplift to read. Thank you. Gorgeous.
How Did Music Save Your Life by Stacy Ashley is an honest look into the life of a teenager. High school and all the realities. But for this girl band class was life changing in more ways than one. And I do agree, all music is uplifting if it lifts you up.
A John Denver Story by Clarissa Simmens is a story I wish there was more of. It says a lot about the artist and his passion for fast cars, airplanes and most certainly, music.
Roar, the song by Katie Perry gave Jen Lea Robbins inspiration like many other music enthusiasts. We all need to find our inspiration somewhere. Music is life-changing, inspiring and motivating. Whatever it takes to make us stronger!!! Thank goodness for songs that speak to us like this.
Every Day Is A New Day by Terra Gray. It's not easy to just say no to bullies. They bring out the worst in us and the only way to fight back is to not let them break our spirit. Music lifts us up when nothing else does.
Free is a story of freedom for Tricia who has faced prison and left a free person. Music helped change her destiny, like so many others. A true story of survival and inspiration.
With Appreciation, A Fan Forever by Mary is a beautiful dedication to a band and songwriter. Music has the ability to set us free.
A Letter From A Dead Man, And His Trusted Pale Steed by J.E. Haldeman. In this fictional/paranormal story there are many truths about human nature. This is a well-written piece that had me thinking about my own life and the changes I could make now. No time to wait as the future is calling. And so is He.
Connected by Sandy Ashley is a story that is written with passion. A passion for music but also a passion for writing lyrics and playing music. Sometimes life changes us in an instant. And music has the ability to do a lot more than meets the eye.
Forever Gone by Chall-Chan Inuzuka This reads like a song to me. Lyrics with an uplifting message. Poetry in motion.
Heaven's Hell by Chall-Chan Inuzuka could be a song for a warrior. Encouraging the survivor in all of us.
Different Ways by Chall-Chan Inuzuka is a poem that inspires to pay attention and is a reminder to share your feelings now and not wait.
Wishful Thinking by Chall-Chan Inuzuka feeling like a poetic lullaby. A dreamers lullaby with an upbeat message. A peaceful slumber to all.
Before The Worst by Kate Marie Robbins is a diary, of sorts. The author shares her love of music and her heart. Feeling alone and not being understood, but this band has filled the gap and made this a survivors story.
Perfect by Declan Kaba is a reminder that we need to talk to ourselves better. Negativity doesn't help. Songs with good messages do. We need to remember that, no matter who we are. What we are. We are all special and unique in our own way. That makes us perfect!
Thought Provoking Soundtrack by Arminta Dellow Music can be a soundtrack to our lives. Even with negativity, its music that binds us and creates memories. Music is a constant. It helps us express ourselves when the words aren't there. Music changes lives and this story is a testament to that fact.
Settlement With The Truth by Abhishek Bipul Thakkar is a dedication to an artist that has made a difference. A song that brings understanding. Something we all need.
Never Give Up by Heather Kirchhoff is a reminder how life changing music can be. Music consoles when nothing else can. Especially when life gets rough. The ups and downs can take it's toll but music is as loyal as your closest friend.
Music Is My Reason by Jen Andrews gives praise to music but also lyrics. Calling herself a 'lyric addict'. Songs that touch her so much they push her to tears. Something most of us can relate to. Her love of music has changed through the years, as music has changed. And because of music, she became inspired enough to start writing. As in a series! Congratulations. Music should always be there in the background to inspire us and to make us grow into anything we wish for.
Lullaby Of Stars by Vrai Kaiser is a beautiful story. Painful and with depth. A person who seeks answers to questions. Searching for life answers and identity. Quite poetic as it describes Javert's final solo in Les Miserables and the final death scene. Sometimes it's better not to know.
Broken Girl, Fractured World by Andrea L. Staum is a story of redemption. After several failed, abusive relationships something life had to improve. And through music, and opening up her mind, life changed for the better. Broken. We are all Broken in some way. That is what makes us open to change. Identifying our vulnerabilities makes us more powerful and accepting of ourselves. Broken World; Fractured World is only the beginning for this girl.
Score by Mar von Zellen is a curious piece. Moving and precise. Kids are cruel, people can be unkind but music is a savior. Not just a savior from ourselves but the world around us.
Adventures With Grandma by Jen Lea Robbins is a sweet little story. Even grandmas can appreciate good music!
Greatness At The Margin by DC Larson is a beautiful gift, a dedication to a musician that might not have received material fame and fortune but to a person who made a difference with his musical abilities and his rare talent that should not go unnoticed or under appreciated. This is an ode to the musicians out there that play from their heart and soul. Who do it for the love of music and their need to have it be heard.
Winter's Guitar by Jasmine McGhee are some poetic lyrics that are dark and had me curious. Sharp is the writing. It had me reading it over and over finding my own meaning in the words.
Music Is My Muse by Tristen Klingensmith is a painful story of abuse. Under all that pain is music that helps to sooth the soul and gives us a different perspective. A place to run to, if not just in our minds. Thanks to the author for sharing her personal story.
Without Music, Life Would Be A Mistake by Natasha Vahora, this is a love song to music and its ability to speak to us at any given time. It's a need that we can all surrender to. A life-raft when we feel we are drowning.
Dear Diary by Twinkle (Sugandha) Varshney moved me and made me see how music can rehabilitate people in so many ways. Not always for an escape but a way back home. Beautiful little story with big heart.
And as a bonus feature, J.E. Halderman includes an excerpt from her second novel, Flames of Halcyon.
"Rock The Cause works with musicians who are not just talented, but who also care about the communities in which they live. They offer their time and talents for a good cause - not just to strike it rich or make it big.
They also work to inspire future philanthropists. They understand that right now, you might not have the cash to donate to a cause you care about, but RTC wants to build up a generation of people who care about one another and donate whatever they can, be it time, goods, services, and yeah, even money.
Some people call it idealistic bleeding heart do-gooders. They call it Rock The Cause. They know our community is growing by the day. They know together we are making an impact!"
