“We are the World”… and it’s time to heed the call! (Phil. 2:4))

we are the world

“We are the World”… 

These are the words that came to me today as  the original song from 1985 played in my head.  Just like all of these recording artists for the 1980’s came together to sing this song, another group of young artists came together in 2010 to remake this song. But the message is the same…. We are the World, We are the children We are the ones who make a brighter day…

We can make a change when we stand together in unity to fight for a cause. That cause today is ABUSE… Human Trafficking… It’s a world wide problem!

Child abuse. Emotional abuse. Physical abuse. Sexual abuse. Elder abuse.  Domestic Violence. Human Trafficking with young girls being stolen and sold into modern-day slavery!  So many abuses! But what can we do???

It’s time to heed the call! Stand together! Make a change! Report abuse! Expose abusers! It’s time to help all of the victims!

Some lyrics for “We’re The World “:

There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can’t go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We all are a part of God’s great big family
And the truth, you know,
Love is all we need

[Chorus:]
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

Philippians 2:4  “Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

  1. Thank you so much for your posts. I enjoy reading them so much. Always inspiring or insightful and beautiful artwork. I am so pleased to be following you 

  2. Precious connection for me. Thank you for being willing to focus on the illness of the world. It’s not easy, and never will be, for my soul. I remember singing this song in a choir with my mom, brother and sister, and a couple kids we grew up with, at a local Center for the Arts. Up on stage, feeling the timber of it in my chills, and now you, putting it to poison as medicine! Thanks for the like! Well met!

    • Thanks for your encouraging words. I remember listening to this song repeatedly with tears in my eyes as I felt the impact that it made on the world back in the 80’s. I just feel that it is time for another “impact” to help the many victims around the world. Many blessings to you!.

    • Thank you so much for your kindness and support. I am very honored and blessed by your nomination. It means very much to me that you are touched by my postings and I deeply appreciate your kindness.. Many blessings to you!

  3. There has got to be some lesson in all this pain women experience in their abusive relationships. Women go back over and over again to their abusers. I just don’t get it. Then they find someone who is actually caring and they cast them off and go back to their abuser…. I’m a man and if any woman wants to enlighten me please do. To tell you the truth I’ve had it with women.

    • I actually wrote about this in my upcoming book. It is because of soul-ties or spiritual ties. They are like invisible bungee cords that keep pulling victims back. Until these soul-ties are broken, these women will continue to get pulled back and hurt again. The wounds of their past make it hard to accept someone new because these abusers were also mostly caring and loving when they met and the early part of their relationship. You have to remember that abuse cycles so they hold onto the “honeymoon” parts of the cycle, thinking that their abuser has finally changed. My soul-ties were not broken till all contact was cut off and then healing could begin. This is hard to do when children are involved. So you see, until the spiritual ties are broken, the emotional ties remain…
      Hope that helps.
