My family has recently moved to Japan for my husbands new job. Since he had to go alone before we sold our home, I had to travel alone with our girls. I was filled with anxiety as we went through customs, unsure of how prepared I was packing suppies for my Type 1 diabetic child. We were loaded down with all our gear and a stroller as we approached the first Japanese customs agent. He took a look at my violin which I was carrying on as a backpack, and asked me if I knew Suzuki violin! He then proceeded to sing “Mississippi-stop-stop with my little one right there in the customs line!! Music crossed the borders that day To ease the stress of traveling! Helping to support symphonic music by supporting the WFSO through Texoma Gives will ensure that many more music stories continue to be told!! Definitely the universal language!!
