    I'm not into destruction of anything that has value that could be used to help or lift another. I like Garth Brooks response to being awaken to the needs of others much better.

    That gives me the courage to have a bonfire with a piano we have been housing all too long. Neither family pianists or those who mess around a bit with a piano will play this one because it sounds so bad. I'd love to attend one of her events!

    'Not anymore'

    This reminds of when Garth Brooks used to smash brand new $1,000 guitars on stage until someone pointed out that there were kids in the audience who would have loved to have had that guitar. To his credit, he then started handing the guitars to fans in the audience.
