A pleasant surprise when we attended a concert held in ISU in Pocatello. Since we started staying here for a few months each year to taste a difference from California, we indeed noticed that this small town appears quite isolated. People are extremely friendly here, but we hardly meet any Asians other than the staff in Asian restaurants.
Then we attended this choral festival event: CULTURE- TRADITIONS- FREINDSHIP- MUSIC – IDAHO INTERNATIONAL CHORAL FESTIVAL.
Touched by the lyrics of the theme song; further moved by the singing together by all choirs participating ( from Costa Rica, Idaho USA high schools, boys from Poland, Chinese women from Bay Area California, Tiantai Buddhism from China, youths from Catalonia ) at the end.
I can’t describe the emotion I felt hearing them, especially when they sang ‘He is watching over us’ together. They have different religions and basis of their hope; yet they were standing on the same stage sharing their passion.
Indeed we shall not lose our hope. We shall continue to connect and pollinate.
