Classical Music Saved My Life

July 17, 2020

My Humanities Moment happened when I realized that Art and Music actually saved my life when I needed it. I remember walking in New York City at night. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. I was so depressed about how New York City is changing. I didn’t see the Old New York anymore. All I see is glass building and ads everywhere.

I reached Central Park at Sunset. I saw a man playing the violin. The sound of the violin reached my soul and spirit. I had my camera at the time and used it to record the music. I stood there for hours listening to music. When the music stopped, I thanked him for everything. I was glad to hear something different and at the same time classic. I learned to cherish everything because things are changing.
