During winter break, I went into NYC with my boyfriend and a couple of friends. Once there, we decided to take a walk through Washington Square Park and there we noticed a group of men sitting together playing music. A crowd had gathered around them and so we figured they must be playing fairly well and decided to go check it out. Once over there we realized how much fun everyone was having. People were singing, laughing, dancing, and we started talking to people we had not previously known and joining in on this newfound fun. Looking back now, I realized it was a wonderful thing for a group of strangers to get together and enjoy music and a good time. If more of the world could be brought together like this it would be a much happier place.
