Although we all have our own differences in beliefs and opinions, there's always going to be those small things that bring us back together. One of those things is the love we share for music.

No matter how completely opposite we might think we are from each other, you can always find one thing in common. Music is that thing for me. Music just moves my soul in a way that nothing else can. I feel a connection towards it, and I know a lot of other people do too. Just playing music can start conversations, strengthen bonds, and bring people together. You might figure something out about someone that you never knew before. It's a way for us to be completely vulnerable and tap into all of our emotions.

I often use music as an outlet. I use it when I'm stressed, angry, sad, happy, in love, and in many other cases too. I use it as a way to hide and run away from my problems. It's so much easier to just listen to the lyrics of someone saying the things you can't say to yourself. I've found this to be true with many other people as well, especially teenagers. Most of the time, when I hangout with friends, we usually just play music and sing along to it. Whether that's in the car or lying down on the couch, we are constantly playing music. This makes it so my variety of music is constantly expanding as I hear new songs every single day.

The biggest way to celebrate music, is through concerts. When you go to a concert, you are surrounded by hundreds of thousands of people. People of all genders, races, religions, political views, sexualities, occupations, and so much more. You don't even know the name of the person next to you, but you still will sing along to the song with them. You have something in common with everyone you're there with. No matter what background you have or what walk of life you came from. You will always be tied and connected through music.
