Support For Your Fellow Man…or Woman…

Happy Humpday people!  Today I wanted to take note of the state of the world and how we all treat each other.  You see it on the news every day…..people hurting one another…..screwing each other over….people just can’t seem to get along.  This past Saturday we got to see the opposite side of that coin.  As a lot of you know, we hosted Dee Fest (http://chicoandchris.com/deanafund.html) to help raise money for Deana Hergenroder Cotton (Chris Hergenroder’s sister) who on June 2nd was the victim of an attempted murder/suicide by her husband.  The show of love and support was amazing.   Friends, fans and strangers came together and endured blazing heat, gridlock traffic and pouring rain to be there for Deana.

I was truly impressed with the energy everyone put into the event to make it a success.  Everyone involved from the production side to the audience side as well as the bands knew they were there for a higher cause and let that awareness be known through their actions that day.

I gave that recap of Saturday to make this point:  Why can’t everyone show that kind of support for one another every day?  Why does it take someone getting shot and almost dying for people to come together and lend a helping hand?  I know there are some that do it on a regular basis…….and yes……most people are generally nice people…..but if everyone put just a little more energy in helping and trying to make a positive difference……do you realize how differently the news reports would be?   There would be more to smile about.  There would be more positive energy just floating around.   There would be more real heroes in the world.

This is just a little food for thought.  We say it on Saturday, June 23rd.  It is still possible for people to come together and make a difference.  Let’s make it a point to keep that ball rolling.

While we’re here I guess I should go ahead and tell you what’s going on this week huh?  Well……Friday evening it’s an early show at Tacky Jacks in Gulf Shores, AL.  Chico & Chris will start at 5:30pm and end up at 9:30pm.  This is an ALL AGES show so bring the kiddies down and grab some dinner.   Saturday’s show has been canceled.

We look forward to seeing you all at the next show…….Until then…..Take Care…..Be Safe…..Make A Difference.
