Wow. I don’t really know where last night’s reflections came from, but obviously deep inside me, and I’m feeling quite emotional. This morning I decided to listen the the Black Eyed Peas song that inspired the title yesterday.
I was in tears.
Have a listen, really listen to the lyrics.. and let’s find many many many ways to answer the question…
“But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you’re bound to get irate
Madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love
People killin’, people dyin’
Children hurt and you hear them cryin’
Can you practice what you preach?
Or would you turn the other cheek?
Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questioning
Where is the love?”
