🌎H U M A N I T Y🌎This word that defines each & every one of us stems from the root humanus, which means KINDNESS, PHILANTHROPY, HUMBLE. Let&rsquos be honest&hellip these days we don&rsquot always live humanity as it&rsquos defined. That said, Tom Petty&rsquos music seems to unanimously and invariably spark that humanity, and in doing so intensely unite us humans.
In these weeks, months, days, that have been such a challenge, full of strife and and endless barrage of hate, maybe we can take a moment and reflect on humanity, the same humanity that we feel at a concert surrounded by tens of thousands of different people with different backgrounds, origins, political views, goals, religions, beliefs. The people we can jump and dance and sing in unison with ensconced by Tom&rsquos music, the same people we share this planet with, the same people that we share humanity with.
Tom Petty, from his lyrics to his music, his stances on accessibility, stardom, politics and money, was a bastion of humanity, something I know we have all felt, and shared.
But maybe, maybe, when things get feisty or tough or full of hate we can for a split second imagine we are at one of his concerts, jumping and singing with our fellow humans, listening to amazing music shared with us by amazing people. Like that I am certain we will be making the world a more kind, philanthropic, humble, welcoming, positive place.
#tbt to @tompettyofficial at @bsthydepark this summer, surrounded by tens of thousands of fellow humans, all truly sharing in humanity. #RETOX
