In October of 2014 we started at the Atlanta V.A. in their nursing home division. We had a simple plan: to bring the healing power of music to those who need it. Since then, we have experienced some amazing moments. A nurse dancing with one of her patient
s, who is in a wheelchair, as she belted out Sittin' on the Dock of a Bay. A wife who sang What A Wonderful World to her bedbound husband as she caressed his face. A janitor who ran to his car, grabbed his trumpet, fell right in and played some jazz for Our Veterans at the drop of a hat. Singing Wind Beneath My Wings with a tear-filled resident who lost his wife too soon. "I just miss her. That was our song."
The older I get the more it means.
