Though the song is based on the judgments that people have with those afflicted with Autism, the core message is universal especially as outlined in the song’s bridge: “How can I make them see? Do they really need a part of me? Come look through my eyes, let’s set these judgments free.”
The writers’ hopes are for the song to be used for many organizations across the world and to bring to light the hopelessness that people feel for being judged. A song is a universal language that everyone can understand. Everyone deserves to be treated fairly and without judgment. Everyone has a uniqueness about them that if given the chance, can make this world a better place. If we can accept people for who they are, we can begin to build a more positive society.
Stokes travels the country speaking on the struggles and victories of living with Autism. His hope is to provide listeners with a rare look through the eyes of a person living with it. He candidly shares his experiences and how each situation and circumstance he has faced throughout his life as a child and an adult has made him feel. It wasn't until Josh began giving lectures that his own parents finally felt like they were beginning to get a clearer picture of their son, which is what he hopes to offer to anyone who attends one of his lectures. He hopes that his tales of the adversity he and his parents faced combined with the strength and successes he has achieved will provide inspiration to others.
