Neglected music

There is a music that is seldom heard and, in oration, a neglected word. Who, in our world, will construct the instrument and found the language that makes peace significant? Who'll glorify restraint, make a patriot of common patience, and a hero of thought? I'd like to hear the melody and the song of quietly and patiently righting wrong; hear trumpets blow for those who do not shirk simple service and ordinary work; bravos for those who believe in peace of mind, make conscience glamorous, keep the country kind!
