Inspiration – Friday, 2-22-19
Carrie Underwood….Love Wins
I heard this song the other day on the radio and it certainly could, and should, be considered inspirational.
How many times do you listen to the news or read something on the internet and just have to take pause because you just cannot believe someone actually said or did something. Something that makes you question the soul of that person. We are so much better than the atmosphere currently in this country & in the world.
What makes someone think they are better then someone else because they look different, love differently or practice a different religion. I have never understood that. I never will.
I grew up in a very white community but did I ever think I was better because I was white ? No, and I was never raised that way. There was no exposure to hate.
When I went to my granddaughters birthday when she was a little girl I was so happy to see all her friends. She could not wait to introduce me. They laughed and hugged each other and they were all different beautiful shades of humanity. It was wonderful. I asked her recently, now that she is a little older, about that day and if things had changed; if she or they thought differently and she said it had not. That makes me happy and that gives me hope for the future. We are all alike; we are all human and that is what matters. Someday there will be a perfect blend of all those shades and we will be one truly and that is the way it should be. I wish it could be that way in my future but I won’t live long enough to see it. I hope my granddaughter’s generation will be closer to that realization. I know it will take a long time.
I have included some of the lyrics from Love Wins below.
If you have not heard the song you really should take a listen.
Politics and prejudice
How the hell it’d ever come to this?
When everybody’s gotta pick a side
It don’t matter if you’re wrong or right, no
And so it goes, but I hold onto hope and I won’t let go ’cause
I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers
And I, I believe we’re made to be here for each other
And we’ll never fall if we walk hand in hand
Put a world that seems broken together again
Yeah I, I believe in the end love wins
Love Wins by Carrie Underwood
