If you want to cure the world, don't emanate fear - emanate love.
I have heard it said that hate is not the absence of love, fear is. Hate is a desperate cry for love. We often fear that which we do not know. How about learning something new this week? How about reaching out and learning about the person you see everyday, but never speak to? Someone new perhaps who isn’t like you, but different. We need not fear our differences, but embrace them for what they are. Neither of us are right or wrong, just different…and different is never something we should be afraid of.
What is happening this week you ask…

Tom started playing guitar taught to him by his mother as a teenager. He soon joined his first band and started playing at local bars and restaurants in the Charleston area. He discovered his love for song writing and even had a local hit on the radio back in the 70’s. He has been compared to John Denver and James Taylor. He has been referred to as “the walking juke box”, because he can usually perform just about anything requested by his audience. Tom moved to Ladson South Carolina back in 2000 and has enjoyed performing with local musicians as well as a solo artist.
