Well I’ve just sat down and turned on my computer, and I can’t help but reminisce on the day I had. This afternoon myself and my good friend Carm Milioto from the band (LIVE HOW YOU LIVE) made a visit to MacMaster Hospital where we performed for the kids in the Ronald MacDonald room.
To say it was inspiring would be an understatement, these kids show so much bravery, so much courage, such a will to survive and we were absolutely moved by them. We started performing for the kids and right away we saw more and more young smiles light up the Ronald MacDonald room. There were some children that were just too weak and sick to leave there room to watch us perform, so we went to them.
We went to each hospital room individually , and gave them there private little show. It was an amazing feeling!
One child that really impacted us , was this beautiful little girl named Samantha. She had a smile like an angel and was in her glory when we played our music. Carm and I took more away from today than those kids did. They taught us a valuable lesson, to be thankful everyday for what we have. It amazes me how upset we can get, espeacially adults, about trivial nonsense! Days like today really put everything in perspective. I’ll be honest, yesterday I was having one of those “feel sorry for yourself days”, but after the privileged experience that we had today, I feel silly for even thinking I had any troubles in my life that were even worth bothering with. RMH is an amazing charity doing fabulous work, and the staff at Macmaster hospital also works so hard to give the proper care to these kids, and do an outstanding job!!
Kudos to everyone trying to make a difference!
Let’s build our world not destroy it!
