ABOUT CARRY ON - From Sahara…
Carry On, is a video/song/book project, that was created to inspire us all to go forward and build a better world here and into the stars, no matter the odds.
As I welcomed my son to this planet, I thought about all the challenges we will all face together, as a nation and as a planet. I was inspired by all the beauty and love that a single day can bring.
I wrote Carry On to remind my son and everyone out there, that through our darkest days we must Carry On. We do so because our world depends on the responsibility we take for each other and our planet.
Artistically, I was inspired the subject of space. Growing up, I was devastated the day we lost the Challenger. I recall holding a small model of the Space Shuttle Challenger in my pocket and watching it on a classroom monitor as it blew up.
It was like watching a beautiful collective dream blow up and turn into a nightmare right before my eyes. It was a moment that defined my life and the way I looked at my place in the universe.
Time passed and I watched brave men and women rebuild and Carry On.
Throughout my life, I have traveled the world and have been blessed with the honor of seeing some of God’s most beautiful treasures, and beautiful creations that came from the dreams of humanity. Through these adventures, I have learned that every single person has the ability to contribute their own verse to the story that defines us as a collective, as we search to understand our place in the Universe.
I have learned that love is the most powerful force that defines us and that we can Carry On and progress life on Earth and off this planet everyday, generation after generation, because love is the reason we rise.
My greatest wish is that this song and video will inspire everyone watching, as well as my son to contribute their talents and abilities to progress life forward for the good of all men, women, children, plant and animal.
One of our greatest superpowers is the ability to inspire and communicate. As an Artist I am honored that I have been blessed with words that I hope will inspire future generations to progress Aerospace discoveries and travel.
