Music is a wonderful thing. It helps us get through hard times such as a loss or a break up. Music can be made out of anything. When I take the bus home it is a long ride, but with music it makes it go by quicker. Music also brings back memories, good or bad. When my mom listens to her favorite song by the sugar hill gang, she instantly becomes happy and sings along. Music means a lot to a nation too. Some veterans cry when they listen to the national anthem because they risked their lives for their country.
