We talk about “change” like we can speak it into fruition. But we sit back and say “I don’t have to make that sacrifice, someone else can”. If we all sit back and expect others to do what’s necessary our future will continue to look bleaker. It’s time to RISE UP!
RISE UP against Climate Change, Poverty, Racism, Gender Inequality, Sexual Violence, Unemployment, Health Care
An oldie but ever so relevant! The most powerful lyrics throughout the song:
And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want
It’s time we wake up and be proactive in paving our own way. We can’t depend on a system that expects us to live on $1 when cost of living is $5. Self sustainability is key!
The message is in the music, take a listen.
A song whose lyrics is relevant AND is accompanied by an appropriate video is very rare!
“And when a gunman makes choice
I wonder what goes through a gunman’s mind
And does a gunman think twice?
Before him takes another someone’s life?
I wonder what it is a gunman say
To the Father when a gunman pray
Does he kiss his kids to bed at night?
Making sure the blanket tucked just right?”
