I legitimately almost cried when I read this
and some of you guys had written some things down in letters, and i was reading them in my hotel room before we came out tonight to play this show and it meant a lot to me to kind of see where you were at, to see how are music
affected you and it reminded me a lot the feelings i had when i was younger going through different things and honestly it doesn’t change. The older you get i think the better you get at hiding it, but it doesnt change. You know we
all want the same things in life. We want community, we want love we want to be loved, we want to be liked, we want to be respected we want to be appreciated. But the thing that inspired me the most about you guys that i met earlier
is that just your hearts are so big and you guys are champions, facing everything that is coming at your right now you guys are champion yourself through it, and i just want to say that you’re not alone and that we’ve got each other we’ve got to press into each other
to help each other through all of this all of the things that we’re all figuring out. I know some of you guys are here right now and you just want to party, you don’t really wanna think about it and that’s cool i get that too.
I don’t want to preach it to you guys. But i just want say that you know it just means a lot to me it meant a lot to me to meet you guys earlier i’m super shy in public i don’t really know how to react, but then when i talk about it and i think about
it for like hours afterwards and process it ,i just really appreciate it. I feel you guys.

FOSTER THE PEOPLE WENT TO A HOSPITAL TO VISIT CHILDREN AND SING TO THEM AND HANG OUT WITH THEM AND MAKE THEM HAPPY OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD TELL ME THEY DON’T CARE I DARE YOU TO TELL ME THEY DON’T CARE OH MY GOD I LOVE THIS BAND WITH MY ENTIRE BEING I’M CRYING SO HARD
The first time i met mark, he was nice, sure but didn’t seem welcoming and like he wanted to meet us. this time around he came up to us, asked us questions, and spent a good amount of time with everyone. i see such a change in him and i once again love the man that writes my favorite music and cares about the people.
