Music is the sort of thing that can be difficult to describe. It is a universal language; a medium through which we can all express ourselves and be understood. Kawacatoose School has done something really great here. They’re giving both a voice and a creative outlet to all those featured in the song. Music is a really significant part of my life, and the fact that they chose to express their message through song really resonates with me. I truly believe that education is the most key part of reconciliation, and spreading a message in a way that we can all understand and enjoy is a great way to do that.
