I really enjoyed your article Bradon. You provided some insightful perspectives that broadened my own, so thank you. I like the idea of art being the first step. It does have incredible value and ability to bring people together.

A thought I'd like to add is the importance of creativity as an essential aspect of art. I feel as though a large percentage of the population is disconnected from art as they are disconnected from their own creativity. We don't see a way forward in our own lives and feel trapped by life's routines. By connecting to one's creativity and curiosity, a path for life can open up to us along with a connection to something more in life.

Art is able bring together people because it speaks to the underlying connection of what is deeply shared between individuals.

Thanks again!
