what kind of world you wish for?

that song just played on my radio and i thought-
what kind of world WOULD i wish for?

good question- and like many good questions where does one start with an answer?

so i thought about it for a bit and all i could think of was this:

“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. … We need not wait to see what others do.” Gandhi

i wish the world would stop and think about what they are doing and the impact it has -

yeah- stop and think - that's is what i would wish for

won't give up

i have been very taken with the new jason mraz single "i won't give up" pretty powerful lyrics and message

and it got me to thinking about life and where i am and who i am

i am a woman who will fight for what i believe in
i will speak out loud for a cause
i am not seeking fame or fortune or popularity
i will fight for my family - against cancer, against insurance companies, against injustice
i support my children when they think for themselves and make their own decisions even if i don't agree

our differences shouldn't tear us apart it should bring us closer together

and my family is more than the people i am related to
i'm your friend till the bitter end

i won't give up

it needs to be said

this was the status on a friend's facebook page today ...
Things that are hard to say but are entirely good to say:
pretty insightful for an 18 year old - and oh so wise
