    A Beautiful Letter From Dan Reynolds

    Second Chances
    🎵Older than water, stubborn as stone
    There'll be no forgiveness for all that you've known
    Oh these days, oh these days get heavy
    Hotter than friction subtle as sound
    There'll be be no forgiveness for you to come round
    Oh there days, oh these days get heavy
    I get older and life fades but you remain
    Open up again I believe in second chances
    Please let me in, oh I believe in second chances
    I won't break you
    I will not let you down
    Open up again I believe in second chances
    Quicker than lightning, whiter than bone
    If you can erase it then I can atone
    Oh these days, oh these days get heavy

    A Letter From A Rock Star

    "Being true to oneself above all-never chasing others' validation. With time they will all go. But you will always remain.

    I get older and life fades but you remain.

    Fame is meaningless. Recognition is meaningless.
    Love is the source of all meaning.

    Arrow gives me complete and perfect love. She sees strangers and says hello. She hugs everyone. She sees no color. No class. No religion.

    If only we all could be 3 years old forever.

    I'll forever remember drawing a mean picture of a kid when I was in 5th grade. I passed it to my friends and laughed. I was a bully.

    It still haunts me to this day. I know he saw it. I know it hurt him. I felt shame later that day and remember wondering why I did it.

    Did I do it because I thought it made me bigger than him? Because I thought it'd make me feel more secure in my insecurities? It didn't.

    It made me feel small.

    I promised myself that day that is never to speak to bring others down again.

    I haven't been perfect. But I do know that bringing others up and finding the good in each other makes one powerful and strong.

    When I was young my dad would always have this homeless man over for dinner and would welcome him into our home. I remember being young and...

    thinking he was smelly and dirty. I remember wondering why my dad let him come into our home which was clean.

    He had a physical deformity in his arm. He was always kind to me when I was young but I still judged him.

    He was on and off drugs for years and my dad continued to have him over throughout the years from time to time. I remember thinking that...

    My dad was just feeding his habit and helping someone who was beyond help.

    One day the homeless man just disappeared. He stopped coming around. We didn't see him for years.

    Then one day a man knocked at the door and I answered in my late teenage years. A handsome tall gentleman in a suit stood at the door.

    He had a huge beautiful smile and a deep intelligent voice. He drove a beautiful car and had a beautiful woman with him.

    I recognized him. His smile. His eyes.

    He was the homeless man that my dad had welcomed into our home all those years. He told me he was now a pastor and traveled all over telling...

    his story. He had beat drugs and been sober for years. He now had a house and a wife. He wanted to come back and thank my dad.

    He came to a show the other day in Vegas.

    That story is forever ingrained in my mind.

    Love infinitely.

    I think Dan's post absolutely sets him apart from most people. I sat here for about and hour pondering what to add. Very little can be added. I don't have the words.
    I think his heathfelt words tell the story of his life and hint at the birth of the song Second Chances.
    I hope when you read this you will consider speaking kindly about someone
