This Israel-Palestine situation has been on my mind. I must confess that I’m basically ignorant of the reasons of what it’s happening in this part of the world.
All I know and care about is that, like so many other war-torn places, innocents are being oppressed, persecuted, displaced and killed. They are being robbed of the simple basic rights afforded by commissions, organizations, rules and bills.
Hate is learned, oppression is enforced by those in power. Inequalities are established when differences are not accepted and some think their way is the only way.
Let these children teach all a lesson: get along.
From a dear Facebook friend. I tend to agree.
“It is deeply disturbing as Palestinians are killed and wounded by the hundreds that the “civilized” world pays more attention to rocket attacks launched by Hamas that haven’t even injured a single Israeli. The world cares more about the thought of a potential Israeli death, regardless of how minute the chance is, than they do about Palestinians actually being slaughtered.
In a world conditioned by propaganda it isn’t surprising that this is the case. After all, the aim of the propagandist is to convince one group of people that another group isn’t human, and therefore doesn’t have rights. Palestinians have been stripped of their humanity and their death is both embraced as it is ignored, for the Israeli race is superior to theirs and the apartheid operations of Israel must continue undeterred.”

Playing For Change

Playing For Change is proud to present a new video of the song “What A Wonderful World” featuring Grandpa Elliott with children’s choirs across the globe. In these hard times children and music bring us hope for a better future.
Today we celebrate life and change the world one heart and one song at a time!!
The world is still wonderful, the skies are still blue, the clouds are still white. Rainbows still appear, flowers are in bloom. Babies cry, they grow and become adults. There’s still music playing, there’s still hope. It can’t be too late.
The world is in our hands. Children can see it. They are pure and have innate goodness in them. Why can’t adults get it like children do?
It is still a wonderful world.
Don’t mess it up.
We ALL are connected through HUMANITY!!
We ALL are ONE!!
