Gifts God Gives: Music
God gives us little gifts that we often take for granted. There are times that we are so saturated with these gifts, that we forget how incredible they can be. Music is one of these gifts.
We hear music all the time. In our cars, elevators, offices, lobbies and virtually everywhere else. We hear it so much that we often lose sight of how incredible this gift is until we see someone experience it after being isolated from it for a long time.
I found this video today. Its clip from an upcoming documentary entitled Alive Inside. The basic idea is that Music can help elderly people who suffer from Dementia or Alzheimers. An organization is giving these elderly people ipods with music that they used to listen to, and after listening to the music, these people have a tremendous response. This video below is about a man named Henry, and the quote below is taken from the video.
“The philosopher Kant once called Music the quickening art, and Henry is being quickened; he is being brought back to life”.
