This week, I’ve been watching ONE’s tweets, blog comments and Facebook comments closely, and I know you guys are feeling outraged, powerless and disappointed about what’s happening in the Horn of Africa. But please don’t let that bring you down or forget why you’re a ONE member. We need you to be strong enough to raise your voice not just for yourself, but for the world’s poorest people. And you can’t do that if you’re not motivated.
So for our ONE act this week, we have a very simple exercise: Tell us what inspires you.
It can be anything — a photo, a song, a quote, your personal philosophy, a story. Maybe a little self-reflection and soul-digging will give you the oomph you need to sign that petition, volunteer for that event, etc. I asked this question yesterday on Twitter and was surprised by how many people (and partners) responded. Take a look: _________________
*MY ACT: "What inspires me... a photo, a song, a quote, your personal philosophy, a story?"
We are huge music lovers. Music moves and inspires us every day. So we chose to share a song that ALWAYS inspires.
The Song - Shed a Little Light by James Taylor
All you have to do is listen to the words and you will know and feel why each time we hear it, it makes us want to be better human beings and to reach out and help our fellow man in times of need.
The words resonate to our Cores...
"And Recognize that there are ties between us,
all men and women, living on the earth,
ties of hope and love of 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 tasks that stand before us,
(THE HORN OF AFRICA!!!),
and the road that lies ahead, we are bound and we are BOUND!
We can not listen to this without tears, and chills and without becoming totally inspired to help our fellow man. It reminds us of the undeniable responsibility we have to take care of each other while we are on this earth!!!
This song represents how we feel about why we should all care about and help The Horn of Africa. It's our "desire to see the world become a place in which our children.." (ALL CHILDREN) "...can grow free and strong".
It is a touchstone for remembering those needing our help. We hope it can be the same for you.
