Music heals the soul; I’ve always been told that. Our hearts continue to ache for those in Vegas, people who were there to listen to music, dance, sing along and live life. Many of our friends and family have stood on that stage or on the grounds where this tragedy played out; nothing shakes us to our core more than that thought. Everyone has thoughts of what to do to remove the monsters from our midst. For me, I’ll choose to love more, laugh more and sing louder (and I apologize in advance for the singing). #choosekindness #stopthehate.
