Music is one of the most powerful forms of media depended on by people of all ages, and in my opinion, teenagers in particular. Just a simple melody can evoke such raw emotion and in many cases, help clarify feelings that a person can’t express in their own words. R. MacDonald’s findings of the effect of music on the mind prove that music can actually be used in a medicinal manner. It can have such an intense effect that it can actually calm feelings of anxiety, and increase tolerance to physical, mental or emotional pain.

This brought me to realize that if other people tried to make a change in people’s lives and motivate them to be healthier, the government would have less sick people to deal with. The only fact of having a healthier population will in itself enhance the quality of the health system in America.
