I was searching lyrics the other day, looking for inspiration. I landed on Where Is The Love? by Black Eyed Peas.
Can you practice what you preach? And would you turn the other cheek?
I listened on repeat. I copied lines into one journal. Printed/cut/pasted lines into another.
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y’all, y’all
This song was released in 2003. It’s as powerful in 2020.
Lack of understanding leads us away from unity
It’s been a hard year for all of us.
It’s been a hard life for too many of us.
We can do better, can work with our minds (and hearts), can gravitate to what (and who) is good, can move toward unity.
We have choices to make.
Let’s choose wisely.
We only got (One world, one world)
P.S. Have a listen (with lyrics) here.

Thank you for this Michelle, this song and lyrics were new to me and impactful. ❤
I’m glad to have shared it with you, Laura! ❤️
The lyrics feel really powerful…
I’ll have to give it a listen! The sad thing is that those who should be listening are marching to the beat of a different (darker) drum. I remain hopeful that light will overcome darkness over these next few weeks. xoxo
With you on both counts, Grace. xo
