Acts of Unity

A significant benefit of the arts is that they bring people together like few other mediums can. Through such forms of art as music, we draw the strength not only to persevere but also to soar through some of our most trying times, and we gain awareness that we are not alone in our struggles but that there are others who are willing and ready to help shine light into our dim paths. Many artists have united to share positive messages of overcoming obstacles and achieving goals through the expression of their creative talents, such as music, as well as through the actions which they have taken, and they have inspired others to also make a difference. Through such movements as hosting benefit concerts, attending rallies, voicing clear messages regarding the need for reformative legislation, and discussing the importance of people banding together for unified visions of progress, many artists have stood by their convictions steadfastly at the forefront of change and have led many people to realize that, despite the most potent of obstacles, hope and optimism are still very much alive.

Rebuilding

One of the most difficult challenges which we may confront is the necessity to rebuild when the storms of life sweep much of what we cherish away. Turbulence can often leave us feeling helpless and hopeless, and we may lose the will to carry on. Yet, through our darkest hours, we must realize that we are not alone. The arts are powerful in showing us that we can overcome and that we have others by our side who are willing to help us rise despite the rubble in our lives. Among the people who often assist us when we seem to lose our way are artists who take initiatives to strengthen us and exemplify that we can prevail.

Demonstrating Compassion

Demonstrating Compassion

Although there are many people in this world who are hurting, we have the ability to show them that they are loved and valued through our care and consideration. We have all faced struggles, and we know the pain of feeling alone and crushed, but we also know the importance of persevering. The arts help teach us the significance in relating to one another and shining with the light of positivity. Many artists have exemplified the power that generates from love and have inspired us to be the difference that this world needs. We are called to be united and to show that there is no place for negativity when progress is to be achieved.

Breaking the Barriers

When we desire to soar but our obstacles seem too monumental to overcome, we need to know that no challenge is so colossal that we cannot gain the victory in our lives. We are not purposed to be defeated but, rather, to be triumphant, and the arts can help provide us with the confidence and courage to confront our adversities. Many artists have not only withstood the pressure from confronting obstacles, but they have risen as champions and encouraged others to do the same. Moreover, they have demonstrated that when we stand united we can break even the biggest barriers and begin to see progress.
