Over the past several weeks, so many wonderful things have been happening and have been shared on this site www.KidRock.com, esp. within "Community". It's an honor to be a part of the Kid Rock Community. It's a pleasure to be a witness to the respect Kid Rock both gives and receives from his fellow musicians, performers, artists, dignitaries ... and yes, his fans!. Were it not for each and every post, discussion, blog, photo, video, comment and message; we could not/would not have the friendship, ... connection ... "community" ... ("congregation" ?) ... we have!
WITHIN IT, THIS BROTHERHOOD BRINGS: HOPE, JOY, COMPASSION, LAUGHTER, SOME RAW HUMOR, FRIENDSHIP, GOOD-WILL, TRUST, KUDOS, SOME VULGARITY :), BLATANT HONESTY, RESPECT, GRATITUDE, INSPIRATION, TOLERANCE AND PATIENCE. We share on a daily basis at times, all of the values KID ROCK emulates. This wave resonates across continents; piercing time-zones and transcending both cultural and socio-economic barriers. Like the American Flag being draped across a baseball stadium floor ("Born Free" MLB video), Kid's message resounds across the nations... PEACE, HOPE and 'GOOD TIMES' :)
Thank You to the KID ROCK entity - 'Family, Friends, and Fans' - for caring so much about the Man himself ~ KID ROCK, Bob, Mr. Ritchie. Your investment in sharing your lives and times, extending your hands, building this community, is deeply appreciated !!
And Thank You, KID ROCK, for walking outside your comfort zone. The interviews; both video and published; are revealing, truthful, without pretense, and go 'above and beyond' the norm for typical musicians/artists. Yes indeed, you are 'down to earth '... but 'typical'? ... Hell No !!!
Where you've gone, sheds true light upon your soul....
Musically ("T(his little light of mine", "Lean on Me", ), Creatively ("Only God Knows Why", "Lonely Road", "Amen", "..Rosary", "ROCK and ROLL JESUS", & "BORN FREE") Overseas (Supporting our Vets., our Troops & "Operation Home Front" ) ... Detroit / America~ Everything!! (Wayne State Scholarship, Made in Detroit clothing, American Bad Ass beer, Sporting events and venues)
What can I say, KID ROCK, You 'Walk the Walk'...! EPIC
Bob, Thank you for listening to that still small voice.
Thank You for putting yourself out there, taking the risk of speaking - while not in song.
Thank You for sharing more than your music with the world, thank you for sharing your beliefs.
(Yes, ALL of Them !!!)
And "Thank You" ~ to your immediate family: without whom you would not be the person you are today.
Your "Gifts & Talents" truly ... 'Bring people together' ... because You Care !
WE LOVE YOU FOR THE MAN YOU ARE, BOB ! BE PROUD ~ KID ROCK ~ WE ARE ! ;)
I Thank God with Each Remembrance of You.
