The Artist and The Activist
If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine.
I have always believed that it is a responsibility not only as a musician but as a person in general to give back. It is not so much the "Be the change you would like to see in the world" mentality but the honest truth that the world is not this huge place that we have made it out to be but a reality of interconnected communities where one circumstance can effect many people. It is about being the light in someone life and putting smiles on others faces. It is about empathy/sympathy and respect for another person's situation. It is about how one action, no matter how big or small can make a difference. I feel that helping when I can is part of not only my responsibility but also my purpose in life. Whether it is physically helping out or being the source of information for a cause, I try my best. Here are some of the ways I do so:
The Jarawa - We are Humanity Project
The Jarawas came from Africa to Asia, 70,000 years ago. They have been living happily and peacefully on their own but they are now facing danger to to the Indian government wanting to assimilate them. It is all a plan to get them off the island they live on to build resorts, etc. We can not have this happen.
