Playing For Change

Not long ago, I happened to stumble upon the PBS special "Playing for Change"..... two seconds in and I was mesmerized. The musicians exuded such a pure creative emotion, that I must admit I found myself crying and smiling. Joyfully of course! For me, It reaffirms the fact that we are truly one. That love is the common thread that connects us to one another and sustains our existence. Organizations such as this, are crucial in inspiring us to go beyond our differences and direct our energy to a greater cause. In this day and age, it’s very easy for us to lose focus on what is important. Playing for Change is one of many movements which brings us back to the fundamental truth that we have the power to make a difference.

"Playing for Change is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music. The idea for this project arose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race. And with this truth firmly fixed in our minds, we set out to share it with the world."One Love -


  1. This is a great video... Music unites the world, no matter where we come from or what color skin we may have; it makes us realize that what makes us different, also makes us alike. Music is very powerful tool that throughout the history of mankind has been used to bring love, peace and compassion amongst the nations. Music soothes the soul!

    Congratulations, Elkie for choosing this video to inspire us to make a change in the world; we can all change the world one good deed at a time!
