In Stockholm, 1982
I grew up in a world where everything was possible
No limitations, no racial or financial issues
A world full of hopes and dreams

I lost my dad when I was 14
I lost my stepdad at the age of 18
Both by the consequence of violence
My dad was murdered, and my stepdad died after years of struggling in a wheelchair
That violence put him in

It threw me off life
It took something so precious away from me that I started to see the issues we have in our society
I could now see racism, classicism, and discomfort amongst the middle class

A world full of violence
And it was something I hadn't seen before
A world that was dark and bitter

Shortly after my realization
I discovered something special
So special, that it drawn all the negativity and darkness: I discovered music
The powerful language of unity

Music killed depression, slaughtered racism, and strangled struggle
Music has no religion, no color and nor limit
Music was a cure
My ear, my blood, it kept my heart beating, and it made me who I am

My wish for us now is to take a moment and reflect on what is going on the world
To tune in, and feel the power to end all bad that lies within all of us
Together we can change the world, make it a better place, make it a place of happiness and unity

Let's take a moment together to gather strength
And start this day feeling as important as it can be
The power is ours
Take a moment
