Elvis Presley's Birthday:

What does one remember or think about on Elvis Presley's birthday?
The 1950's, or the Army years? What about the movies and Las Vegas?
Or the controversy surrounding his death?
All of those aspects may come to mind when one recalls Elvis; but I have noticed that almost everyone I speak to overlooks one tremendously important aspect: His impact on our world today.
When you look at any truly talented singer today; from the Beatles to Lady Gaga; they are all touched in one way or another by Elvis Presley.
Elvis paved the way for future performers to express themselves freely and not be stopped by any barrier. Born shortly after the Great Depression, in Tupelo, Mississippi; Elvis was destined for greatness.
By the age of 21, he had a gold record, one million dollars and a movie deal. He inspired people to fulfill the ‘American Dream’ all over the world and demonstrated that it was attainable.
Throughout his life, he gave to people sometimes with donations to various charities or with hope.
Hope for someone, that someday, they would be able to live without the fear of being judged because they are a different race or religion.
Hope to that one kid in every school who was always different and harassed or looked down on. One day they could rise above those who tormented them and be successful and have the life they had always wanted.

And so, today on the seventy-seventh anniversary of his birth, let us not remember him for his death or common human qualities; but for his contribution to all generations: past, present and future.
“ It’s rare when an artist’s talent can touch an entire generation of people. It’s even rarer when that same influence affects several generations.” --Dick Clark.

What does one remember...?

I do remember that with him there came a wholelife expression of what LOVE really means, how it can be impersonated by some human being through all kinds of life's events and adversities and SHINE ON. His presence and his voice is a "place" where to find compassion and understanding... companionship and brotherhood... and all the rest of the atributes of LOVE.
