reflection

My friend Carla introduced me some youtube videos and one of them is what I'm gonna share with you. While watching the film, only feeling of shock came. We all dream of a just and peaceful world but are we really doing something to make it happen? We are said to be the caretakers of this world as we are the highest living form of organism but we seem not to know what's included in the word "highest". We seem to lack understanding which is needed in most real life situation. One problem is not resolved by doing another problem like killing (as a thought of ending all problems). After watching this film, let us feel our worth and the others as well. The question left to me after watching this film is why do people do such thing. and how can they do such.

This video is a sensitive one. If you are eating, pls. finish eating first before choosing to play this video. This is a sort of documentary taken in Indonesia.



Let us do something. We can make this world a better one.


Heal the World (by Michael Jackson)

There's a place in
Your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could
Be much
Brighter than tomorrow
And if you really try
You'll find there's no need
To cry
In this place you'll feel
There's no hurt or sorrow

There are ways
To get there
If you care enough
For the living
Make a little space
Make a better place...

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough
For the living
Make a better place
For you and for me

If you want to know why
There's a love that
Cannot lie
Love is strong
It only cares of
Joyful giving
If we try
We shall see
In this bliss
We cannot feel
Fear or dread
We stop existing and
Start living

Then it feels that always
Love's enough for
Us growing
So make a better world
Make a better world...

And the dream we were
Conceived in
Will reveal a joyful face
And the world we
Once believed in
Will shine again in grace
Then why do we keep
Strangling life
Wound this earth
Crucify its soul
Though it's plain to see
This world is heavenly
Be God's glow

We could fly so high
Let our spirits never die
In my heart
I feel you are all
My brothers
Create a world with
No fear
Together we cry
Happy tears
See the nations turn
Their swords
Into plowshares

We could really get there
If you cared enough
For the living
Make a little space
To make a better place...
