Cyrus explained in a recent interview how the meaning behind his new single has changed since it was originally written. He explained that was inspired by a school shooting, and that it has now done what it was meant to do. “I initially started writing ‘Hope Is Just Ahead’ the day after the Columbine shootings with Don Von Tress,” he noted. “I feel like ‘Hope Is Just Ahead’ has now found its purpose. Cyrus will donate a portion of sales of the single to the “Do The Write Thing-National Campaign to Stop Violence.” The group was developed to create awareness and stop violence among young people in schools before it has a chance to develop.
Cyrus discussed the “Do The Write Thing-National Campaign To Stop Violence” in his comments. ‘Do The Write Thing’ is one of the few ideas I have seen in front of us as a society in America that can actually make an immediate and positive impact, a real difference in stopping violence in schools before it happens,” he said. “If this concept can save one life, if the thought of early detection means one less Sandy Hook, VA Tech or movie theater massacre, then it needs our support.” He went on to add that “Edmund Burke said, ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing,’ so let’s no longer just stand back and say ‘I saw this coming, but did nothing.’ We have to try something, standing here debating and procrastinating, just ain’t working.” More information on “Do The Write Thing-National Campaign To Stop Violence” is available online at http://www.dtwt.org/about-dtwt.
