Can you imagine your heart pounding in your chest when you have just lost sight of your child for 5 minutes between two aisles at the grocery store? Now imagine having lost your child for several years , not knowing what he is going through.
We don’t dare ever imagine losing a child for a lifetime ……. We have 5 Babystardusts in our band and there are all our most precious jewels.
It’s just unimaginable.
Because children are precious and childhood is sacred. When an event arises, abruptly ending the life of an adult, a man becomes a widower, a woman becomes a widow, a child becomes an orphan. The only word to describe a parent losing a child is: PAIN.
We artists, live our emotions intensely and our duty as artists to society is to reflect how people feel and to react, as our artistic voices can help.
When the pain is unbearable, music calms, uplifts and helps. Music soothes the soul when words no longer ease the pain.
In good and bad times, music unites and brings a sense of wellbeing.
For around Joshua, music must be significant and engaging with respects to core human values for Dave, JF, David & MC.
Therefore, this is why we will be on stage in one week supporting the Cedrika Provencher Foundation.
Because dramas such as that of Cedrika’s, a young girl full of life who left us too early, can be prevented. Her family courageously shows us that negatives can be transcended to positive regardless the circumstances.
We therefore need to support them and humbly participate through our music to become ambassadors of the cause.
Aj believes firmly in the foundation’s mission. We are convinced that with the implication of citizens of all ages worldwide, we can make a difference.
We wish to join the Cedrika Provencher Foundation towards a common goal, to promote the existence of necessary and useful specialties and compentencies to protect our children and permit a rapid and efficient intervention, in cas a similar drame ever unfolds.
We hereby invite you to attend August 7th at Archibald Trois Rivieres.
In the event you cannot attend, we kindly invite you to make a donation to the Cedrika Provencher Foundation via their website: http://fondationcedrika.ord/dons/
If your budget is tight ……. Always be engaged citizens, but foremost be all humans attentive to other and guardians of the sanctity of childhood.
Others’ children will always be somewhat yours, as in the end, they are tomorrow’s future.
-Dave, JF, David & MC
