“It’s easy to be discouraged looking at the world. It’s easy to wonder what is happening to our society and ask why is it so bad? It’s easy to give up hope. However, I guarantee if you open your ears and listen to these children sing you will be reminded that there is still so much good in the world”
Please don’t take the director’s word for it. Open your ears and listen to the Chester Children’s Choir Sing….
Did you hear it? Did you see it? How could you miss it? John Alston has provided urban children from Chester an opportunity to share their voices with the world for over 22 years and he reminded the crowd of something we need to do on a daily basis. Find the Good!
I like so many have struggled to find it while watching the death of a man on on live stream, reading details of the attacks in France, urging my friends in law enforcement to be safe, listening to arguments over whose life matters, or keeping count of the 65 plus shootings in my city of residence, Wilmington, Delaware. It would be extremely easy to say that maybe the Good doesn’t exist anymore. However, after attending this concert I have to agree with John Alston and think their voices say otherwise.
