音樂改變世界Playing for Change
It was a normal day in New York. The subway was full of people. They were using these underground trains to travel to work and school. Mark Johnson was on his way to work. As he entered the subway, he heard unusual music. He described the musicians to the Epoch Times newspaper.
"I heard these two monks playing music. These religious men were painted all white, from head to toe. They were wearing long, flowing robes. One was playing a music instrument, a guitar. The other was singing in a language I did not understand."
But then Johnson observed the behaviour of the other subway travellers. People gathered around the musicians. In fact, about two hundred travellers stopped to listen. He told the Epoch Times what he thought about this event.
"I recognized that here is a group of people that would normally run by each other. But instead they are coming together. And it is the music that brought them together."
For Johnson, this experience was an example. It showed him that music is universal. It goes past the limits of language, race, culture, and place. It unites people in ways that language and tradition cannot.
Johnson's experience in the subway gave him an idea. His idea was that music could bring peace to the world. So in 2005, he gathered together a few other people who also believed in the power of music. They believed that the power of music is stronger than the differences between people. Together this team of people started the project Playing for Change.
"Playing for Change was born out of the idea that we have to encourage and influence each other to come together as a human race. And that music is the best way to do this."
"The intense reaction to this project is exciting. It is very satisfying to all the people who have worked to make it happen. It demonstrates the great power of music to bring people together and make the world a better place - something we had faith in all along."
