There comes a time when one realizes the power of music. Our lives revolve around it. Music can tug at our emotional strings, influence how we feel, and pinpoint a specific memory from our past. I for one can recall a memory with a song and explain in detail what was going on just by hearing that one song. It’s interesting how we can do this. We relate our memories and experiences in life with music. To me it’s rather therapeutic.
Life continues to change. Change can include new musical types that are added to our evolving musical taste. Recently I have added more and more Country music to my ever-evolving musical palette. I have begun to relate moments in my life to the likes of Trace Adkins, Rodney Atkins, and Maddie Larkin. The third artist is an up and coming Country singer/song writer that I had the privilege to listen to. She recently released her debut album, “Letters From My Cold Heart” and I’m impressed. From the sound of Maddie’s voice, to her lyrics, and the entire band behind her, I was impressed.
What struck a chord with me the most was how much I was able to relate to her. My love for writing comes from my life experiences and those around me. For Maddie Larkin though, her gift for writing was first revealed in a life-changing event. In her own words,
“My gift of writing was revealed at age twelve after a devastating back injury ended my hopes of being an elite gymnast. In order to express the pain I was experiencing and the frustration of not being heard, I began pouring myself into writing lyrics.”
It’s interesting how it takes a life altering experience like this to find out what we are made of and what our calling is. I believe we can all relate with Maddie as we think back to a time where instead of giving up, we fought back and won. Driven to succeed, Maddie taught herself to play the piano, guitar, and ukulele. Her passion for music and lyrics is easily heard throughout her music. From the anthem of “Give It Up” to the ballad of “Summer Star”, “Letters From My Cold Heart” is a musical success that anyone can relate to and reflect. The combination of life and music is where we can compare to Maddie Larkin. Where we have many gifts in life, Maddie’s gift is music.
“I discovered what I am called to do. Music is me.”

Good morning everyone! I’m back with another awesome episode of Within the Trenches. In this episode I tried something different from the norm. At the suggestion of two awesome 9-1-1 pro’s, Kristina and Shelley, I grabbed my digital audio recorder and walked the expo hall for spot interviews. I have to admit that it was a lot of fun and I was able to get some good audio.
Probably one of the most interesting parts of this episode dealt with THOR Shield that is made by Intrado. Monica, who works with the company, walked me through this massive mobile PSAP (Public-Safety Answering Point.) The trailer of this unit sits 17 dispatchers and has its own conference room on the second floor. I wanted to get some photos but was unable to. I was told that I can get some shots emailed to me and as soon as I get those I will post them up for all to see. I hope you enjoy this episode and as always you can email the show at email@example.com.

5k races are run all the time but did your race leave you with a sense of happiness and the appearance of a Dr. Seuss character? The Color Run, known as the “happiest 5k” by the events web site thecolorrun.com, took place today in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Mlive.com reports that, “more than 10,000 people ran through downtown Sunday morning.” The events web site states that the run consists of two simple rules, “1) White shirts (any mostly white T will work great) mandatory at the start line and 2) Color plastered EVERYTHING at the finish!” They go on to say that, “Runner/walkers begin the 5k at the start line like a brand new pristine coloring book. By the end, they look like they fell into a Willy Wonka… tie dyed… vat of colored goodness.” The Color Run did not disappoint and proved to be the “happiest 5k” as shown in the video below.
