This song was written back in 2012 when the fires were raging out of control in the western United States and tsunami’s were hitting the Philippines. We easily see and understand the damage done by large-scale natural disasters and weather events; but often we overlook the sweeping scale of personal injury and damage right in our own backyards–abuse, neglect, discrimination and hate.
This song reminds us that whatever tragedy we are witnessing, we are the answer. We are the voice, the hands, the support needed to turn it around and help those in need. “We pray to God to heal the world”, but that healing doesn’t occur by lightening bolts and invisible angels coming to magically change the world.
We are the change. We are the healers.
It’s time for us all to step up and own that responsibility for ourselves, our families, our communities and our planet!
