Raul Midon: Plays “Everybody” and “Peace on Earth”

Raul is a man that has been challenged his whole life. People have stereotypical towards him mostly because of his disability. Raul is blind but he and his strength allowed him overcome adversity. People have told him that he could not do it, that he was not going to make it. But this video i have watched shows the he has not only succeeded but has thrived, and through his music he preaches his message, which is not only inspiring but it tells a story.

His first song is called “Everybody” tells a deeper message than what you hear. The song is inspiring to people who have a disabilities and it tells that you don’t have to be somebody to make a difference. People in everyday life make a difference. For example police officers help to make us feel safe and protect the things we care the most about. ” Everybody gonna make a little difference in this world.”

His second song is called Peace On Earth. It is relevant to the time we live in now because of the war against terrorism. One lyric in this song says that there is no freedom to be free. We have to fight for freedom and if we fight there is no Peace on Earth. Peace on earth is what we want but i am not sure if it is a reality.
