A Choir As Big As the Internet
Written by Robyn O’Brien
In my work educating and inspiring families into creating solutions to the problems that we are seeing in our food system, I am often asked, “What can I do?” “Can one person really make a difference?” And my answer is always, “Yes, and never underestimate your ability to affect change.”
Because each and every one of us has a unique skill set and collection of talents that makes us like no one else on the planet. If you leverage those talents with something that you are passionate about, you can create extraordinary change in your life, in your own health and in the health and wellbeing of our country.
You can become a voice for change.
And that’s a beautiful thing, just like this incredible collection of individuals- 185 voices from 12 countries around the globe – joining in a “Virtual Choir” conducted by Eric Whitacre over the Internet. It has been said about Eric, who keep in mind received no formal training in music until the age of 18, “What hits you straight between the eyes is the honesty, optimism and sheer belief that passes any pretension. This is music that can actually make you smile.”
It is a gorgeous reminder of how collectively, leveraging our voices and our talents, we can create something new and extraordinary.
And that despite our separations, it reminds us of how connected we truly are.
