A "listen to your heart" place - Submitted June 26, 2006
First of all, thank you. I grew up in the house at pooh corner. My mom has raised me on your music and I dont know what I would do without it or you. So once again, thank you.
I am a fifteen year old girl who wants to save the world. I have that "Conviction of the Heart" that everyone seems to lack. The other day I went to school with the word conviction written on my forehead. For some naive reason, I expected people to look at me and ask me why and when I told them, they'd change their ways and start living with conviction. Instead, I was laughed at. Kenny, I need to know where I go from here. What do I do with my conviction? How do I convince people to fight for what they believe in? Better yet, how do I fight for what I believe in? I want a better world. I want people to be happy and I want to end all bad things. I know this is impossible, I want to believe it isnt, but I know it is. But I need to do something. But what exactly is that something? I feel like the Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz when she comes to the crossroads .. only my scarecrow has gone missing. The only place I can find comfort is in your music. So Kenny, "Please celebrate me home"?
You are a beautiful person, never change.
I, too, love "Conviction." I am impressed that someone your age has independently come to a "listen to your heart" place in life so soon. This bodes well for your life.
