Workshop Assignment

I bought my first album a very long time ago. It had to be back in high school. And although I am an avid music lover, I can not for the life of me remember which album it may have been. So I'll talk about all of them.
I love music. I love identifying with various songs out there, and we all do. Music is one of those few universal things that can bring humanity together. Take teenagers from all over the world and put them in a room together with nothing but music and they will bond. They will find that when it comes down to it, there are no differences between all of us that matter.
Yes, the ability of music to soothe the inner beast within all of us, and to start a person's toes to tapping and make their mouth start to curl at the corners just a bit, is non-discriminate. Music does not see skin color. Music does not see gender. Music does not see borders or nationalities. Music does not see religions. Music does not see handicaps or diseases. Music does not see social castes or economic brackets. Music just is.
