A Reminder


Sometimes, a song can remind you of something. Remind you that the way the World is today, and the way it will be tomorrow, is up to us.

This is a song by Duran Duran , written as a reaction to the attack on 9-11.  It reminds us that there was a lesson learned that day, and a decision about what that lesson should have taught us.  It’s a decision we, each of us, make anew each day: how we will treat each other, and how we will help others to a better life, so this sort of tragedy does not have to happen again.

 

What decision will you make?

Point of No Return

(words and lyrics Taylor, Taylor, Taylor, LeBon, Rhodes)

The random aspects of our lives
Come together once in a while
So blinding and decidedly
Naivete falls from our eyes
And we’ll not regain
As we watch the tower falling down

Maybe things can change
Only if you want
Maybe things can change
Only if you want

You know, you know there’s no avoiding
The lesson to be learned
The lesson to be learned
The point of no return
You say “What if?”
But can you live it?
It’s all that we deserve
It’s all that we deserve
The point of no return

Don’t blame yourself
Don’t blame me
But we’re the ones
Who can feed the ground
So this poison tree, don’t let it grow again
And from this glass and broken earth
There is a way that can be built
A better life for everyone

Maybe things can change
Only if you want
Maybe things can change
Only if you want

  2. Yes things CAN change.. only if we make them change and want the world to be peaceful.. We are the ones who have to alter our ways of being if we want to experience a kinder world, then we have to start and live our lives accordingly..
