While we might be physically apart, there are still many ways for us to be united through the help of technology. Today we keep in touch with family and friends with the use of FaceTime, Skype, and Zoom. Knowing that we can be together virtually for now is still a comforting thought. Also, sometimes we can unite with strangers over a shared interest or passion. Take music for example, everyone listens to music even if it’s all different genres. Keeping this in mind, One World: Together At Home aims to bring us all together with the help of music.
