On That Note: Changing the World

Can songs change the world?

Peter Arian, the president of our congregation’s Board of Trustees, recently emailed me because he had heard a story on the radio that he thought might be of interest to my wife and I as parents of a transgender child (as well as to Beatrice, our daughter, herself):

I’ll make this brief: the album is a great mix (for all ages), and Beatrice loves it. There are 21 tracks covering a large range of topics, in a wide variety of styles. I imagine that these songs are going to be immensely helpful to strengthen the inner resources of a person struggling to be accepted in a world where gender identity is still used as grounds for discrimination. And yes, this struggle can be a person’s world, especially when they are young.

If you want to change the world, you can download the album.

Payment is voluntary, and all proceeds go to Camp Aranu’tiq, a summer camp for transgender children.

Our theme for September is Renewal. Here is some music that speaks to this topic:
