The Log Hoggers In 2003 Sheltered Reality came into existence with the mission to “employ the power of music to engage and motivate audiences to make positive change both in themselves and the world they live in.” It is the general belief that music is a universal language, and Sheltered Reality uses music as a way to open the hearts of their audiences — this allows group members to share their personal stories of hardship and triumph. “These are not words about strangers, but of members of one human family, people that have displayed courage, commitment, and genuine concern for the welfare of others, even under trial. This process is meant to inspire all to not only become better individuals, but to take action to help others succeed in life as well. We all do have the power to make changes and to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors, and thus in the world around us.” (According to their website, www.sheltered-reality.org) Sheltered Reality’s primary focus is the advocacy for youth in crisis. To achieve this they teach personal empowerment and character building, and then encourage the application of these abilities. In 2003, SR had 75 members, all based in the state of Iowa. In 2009, there are more than 300 members with groups all over the country. Sheltered Reality will be performing Saturday at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. at the Amphitheatre.
