Shed a Little Light

In remembrance of the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. ( And my mother, by the way). Can't we all just love one another? ANyway...one of my favorite songs:

SHED A LITTLE LIGHT

Let us turn our thoughts today to Martin Luther King,

And recognize that there are ties between us
All men and women
Living on the earth
Ties of hope and love
Sister and brotherhood

That we are bound together
In our desire to see the world become
A place in which our children
Can grow free and strong

We are bound together
By the task that stands before us
And the road that lies ahead
We are bound and we are bound

There is a feeling like the clenching of a fist
There is a hunger in the center of the chest
There is a passage through the darkness and the mist
And though the body sleeps the heart will never rest

Shed a little light, oh lord
So that we can see
Just a little light, oh lord
Wanna stand it on up
Stand it on up, oh lord
Wanna walk it on down
Shed a little light, oh lord

Can’t get no light from the dollar bill
Don’t give me no light from a tv screen
When I open my eyes
I wanna drink my fill
From the well on the hill

Let us turn our thoughts today to Martin Luther King,

And recognize that there are ties between us
All men and women
Living on the earth
Ties of hope and love
Sister and brotherhood........

You might agree... we have heard 'WOLF! WOLF" sooooooooooo often about nuclear weapons/ terrorists, etc. that many yawn when we appeal for:

PEACE AND LOVE.. between common people of the entire globe..

We have been told over and over, "time is running out".. so what do we do..

Brings to mind the slogan: "Think globally, act locally".. peace and love, like a journey, starts with one step.. one beginning, to reach out, unjudging, and try to show a friendly loving face.

For me, I have been trying to meditate my way out of ROAD RAGE...

Best wishes..

recognize that there are ties between us all, men and women.

so many people think that Martin Luther was just about equality of the races, but I believe that his message was more about equality of people.

this verse hits the nail on the head. very fitting

I hadn't visited in quite some time and find this truly compassionate piece. It made me think of something I learned years ago - embrace our subtle differences because they are what make life less boring. Yet, at our core, are we so different at all?

As always, it was nice to gain another little glimpse inside.

Thanks H&T....it's the difference that make thing interesting and the sameness that ties us tightly.
