I just wanted to say a tremendous thank you to all the writers and directors and musicians who make movies and books and music that inspire and change people. I know most people like that will never see this post but I really wanted to express my gratitude to them. It really is incredible the effect any one of those things can change someone. They can make all the difference in the world. I mean that. I’ve seen how people can be changed by a book they read. I know because I’m one of those people. Really, I get can get inspired by everything. I love that feeling I get when I walk out of a movie theater after seeing a great film. All the mixed emotions and all the tears I probably shed or almost shed. Or the feeling when I finish a good book. I can’t explain it. It’s just something you need to experience for yourself.
But seriously. Thank you. One day I really hope I can do that. To reach and touch someones heart in that way. A way that no one can describe. In books and movies, what makes them good is being able to relate at some level to the characters and seeing yourself in them. That makes it beautiful. Or when you hear a song and you feel like it was written just for you and you put it on repeat and just cry. I hope that you guys know what a profound affect you have on people. I know its not just me. People can be changed by a book or a movie or a song. Its such an incredible thing.
I really do hope I can do something that amazing one day. I want to help people. To change people. I want to help people who thought they were beyond help. I want to lift up the people who thought they had hit rock bottom. Because no one should feel alone. It hurts me to think that there are people who think that no one noticed them. I desperately want to meet someone like that so that I can show them they’re wrong. Everyone deserves to have a Breakfast Club or to feel infinite. That is my goal. To be a friend to someone who has none. To shine the love of Christ to people who are in the dark.
So I greatly envy those people who can write or work to do that. But you writers and musicians, you guys inspire me. I can’t even explain my gratitude. Thank you for doing what you do. God really has given you gifts. Thank you for sharing them with us.
