Us + (God + "X") = the solution

by Carolyn Hamlett

"God doesn't give us anything we can't handle." is not a scripture in the Bible.

The last thing a depressed person wants or needs to hear from you is "God doesn't give us anything we can't handle." I have to wonder if the last person who killed them self died hating God because they KNEW they had more than they ALONE could bear and that they had endured it for many months or many years trying everything possible to get free.  

Maybe those words, "God doesn't give us anything we can't handle." was the last "helping" hand of 'wisdom' tossed to them that threw them into further despair...along with the often meaningless words of "I'll be praying for you".  Many who say those things have no clue what depression is nor do they have any intention of "praying" or lifting a finger to help the one in despair. 

In the past when clueless people have told me in that sing songy sort of way, "God doesn't give us any more than we can handle.", I just wanted to slap them.  I thought...then why am I a frayed end of a frayed end away from killing myself just to get myself out of my own misery? 

Trapped animals are known to chew off the very limb that is caught. Can't people fathom that depression can be just as much a misery? It is.

Is man an island, or part of a larger body? 

If a fellow man falls off a cliff to a reachable ledge, or a fellow man is in water too deep to stand and he is exhausted from struggling...should another fellow human just tell them "God doesn't give us any more than we can handle." and leave them for the hand of God to reach down from heaven to snatch that person up and place him on solid ground?...or should we Christians be that hand of God as His Body on earth? There are many instances in the Bible where we are told and shown to help one another. In fact it is a commandment. 

Often telling someone who is in deep despair at the brink of death, that "God doesn't give us more than we can handle." not going to be the understanding, consoling, comforting words that bring encouragement to that suffering person. I know with myself, it makes me feel even more alone, misunderstood, judged and rejected. Judged in that the person saying that has already decided that I am not trying to help myself and that what I feel is something so mild, that anyone with an ounce of strength could move it. 
"Just snap out of it!" are also meaningless words. Do people actually believe the depressed person has not tried with all their might to "snap out of it'? Telling someone to "snap out of it" does not help. It is more likely to drive the depressed person into more isolation to avoid more condemnation and misunderstanding. 
Often it is those non thinkers who are the ones who strike up the conversation to begin with asking the depressed person what is wrong. When the depressed person tries to tell them how they are feeling...the non thinker slaps them with their idiotic insensitive solution which is to stop it and to "snap out of it". Ahhh, if only it was so simple to just "snap out of it".
"You should be thankful for what you have. You have nothing to be depressed about." I have never known a person who suffers from depression who is not keenly aware of their blessings, in fact they are probably more keenly aware of their blessings than most blessed people. It is our blessings that we have clung to with white knuckles as we fight for our very lives. 
"You should....", ""You should....", "You should....", "You should....", "You should....", "You should....", "You should....", "You should....", "You should...."
You know what??? You people who are full of shoulds.... 
SHOULD STOP  shoulding on us!!! if we have not thought of every way possible and then some to help ourselves!!! and tried every way possible and then some to help ourselves!!! We are depressed, NOT brainless morons. In fact some of the brainiest most intelligent humans in the history of mankind have suffered depression. We are not idiots. 
"Stop feeling sorry for yourself!" is often the next "life preserver" of condemnation that further helps sink the depressed like a mill stone around the neck. Again it shows that the bearer of such words do not understand the situation at all. They also do not understand that there is not a thing wrong with being in touch with one's own feelings and emotions.
Do you ever feel happy for yourself?  Are you NOT aware of feeling happy when you are feeling happy???  We who suffer from depression certainly know what happiness is and hold on to any thought of happiness we have EVER had as we fight to stay afloat the dark waves of the sea of depression.
How about being sad??? Are not people aware when they are feeling sad? Is there ANYTHING wrong with being aware of whether you are happy or sad, full of joy or full of sorrow? Of course not.
What is wrong with feeling sorry for oneself? 
Maybe I am wrong, but didn't Job in the Old Testament feel sorry for himself? 
Often when non thinking, insensitive people have told me to stop feeling sorry for myself, I tell them that if they felt the way I did at that moment, I'd certainly feel great sorrow for them, so can I not feel sorry for myself? There is so much sorrow and pain in the depth of depression I have lived, that while I am in it, I am fully aware that I would NEVER wish it upon my worst enemy! 

What so many people fail to want to comprehend, is that it is because we have tried and tried to help ourselves and are STILL helping ourselves with every ounce of our strength with no relief, that we, in our despair, do indeed feel sorry for ourselves being in the place we are stuck in. There is nothing wrong with that. 
Wouldn't a person stuck in quicksand struggle and struggle until they were exhausted and find that when they are exhausted from the struggle that despair sets in and with that great sorrow for themselves for being stuck there? Only a clueless person thinks that feeling sorry for oneself means we have been just sitting on our duffs and not trying with all of our being and then get free.
It was in my early walk with Jesus Christ that I realized that people DO get more than they can handle and that the solution to that equation is lies in the variable "X". 

Us + (God + "X") = the solution.

I have to wonder:

For all the people who have taken their own lives after battle fatigue of dealing with depression and having no relief...

- How many of those people had been ignored and were not helped by their friends and family?

- How many of them were callously told, "God doesn't give us any more than we can handle?" 

- How many people are there who didn't take their lives, but have turned on God and hate Him because someone or someones coldly told them that God doesn't give them any more than they can handle? 

Did you know?...

The scripture that people use to claim that God doesn't give us anything we can't handle, is talking about being tempted, NOT about suffering, so that verse DOESN'T even apply to many cases when life throws a curve ball and things become unbearable. I found this scripture where the Apostle Paul expresses something different.

2 Corinthians 8, 9. 
"For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life:
But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raises the dead."
Paul referred to "we". He may have had despair, but there were others who were sharing equally in that with him. They did rely on God to help them. 

If you have ever experienced the grief of loss of a dear friend or family member or even a loss of a love relationship, you may remember feeling as I have, that being with someone who knows that very same level of grief, can often be comforting and aid in healing the wound. When my friend, John Boncore aka "Splitting the Sky" left this world in March of 2013, I felt deep grief.  I can only begin to imagine what his own family and closest friends felt.  I wasn't one of his closest friends and many of his friends probably never knew that I knew him at all.   It was the deep soul connection that he and I had from the day we met, that was wounded at his passing. I found that the only thing that relieved my pain was to talk with one of his dear friends who knew him better than most. He too knew "Dac" as we called him, on a soul/spirit level. Together that friend and I walked through it. We both felt crippled, but when two are walking on the path together arm and arm, crippled as they may be, they can still be that needed crutch for each other to help them both make progress.

So, even though many people believe that the scripture, "God will not tempt us beyond what we are able to handle."  means something different, that God doesn't give us more than we can handle, 

there is a second part of that scripture that people leave important part!...which clarifies something.

"with the temptation [God] also makes a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it." 

Sometimes that way out is found by the exercise of will power alone, but sometimes God, knowing what we are up against, will provide us with more help. Sometimes He sends his angels, sometimes He sends other humans in His Name. 

I wish there were more whom He could send in His Name.

Early in my Christian walk, Johanna Michaelsen told me that the church (body of believers) is God's provision for us. She was trying to help me find a good church of supportive Christians in my area to help me on my journey. I was very frustrated in my new walk because I saw few Christians who actually served God with all of their heart, mind, body and soul and spirit. Nearly 30 years later, it is no different. You hear many Christians singing "Oh let me be Your hands and your feet!", but few seem to go out and actually be His hands and His feet. If Christians actually allowed The Spirit of Christ to work through them, not only would fellow Christians become stronger, but as a Body, we could actually make a difference in this evil ridden world. Think of what we as a body could do if we acted as Jesus Christ did and did the deeds he did. 

Us + (God + "X") = the solution.
"X" = fellow humans.

Take it from me. I know this is a fact:  

What a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives haven't happened yet! 

Note: This is an article I wrote a year ago in 2013. 

It is just one of many articles I have written that will eventually find it's way onto my blog.

We Are The World, We Are The Children

by Carolyn Hamlett

Feedback is a good thing.
For the most part I have gotten very good feed back concerning this article. However, there have been a few people who have written to me who have totally missed the point of my article. 

For the few who have misinterpreted this article, I seek to clear up any misunderstanding.

I originally wrote this article about a year ago with the tentative title of "Just Say No".  Because the original article was quite long, I shortened it and instead stated the foundational facts very simply in my first paragraph of this article of which some of you seem to have completely missed. 

Please take note of my very first paragraph. I apply "the 5 "W's" and "H" of journalistic writing which tells you the bottom line facts that the rest of the article explains.

Who? The masses 
What? Are being easily led.
When? In the past and now.
Where? All over the world.
Why? "The globalist plan.
How? Globalist run media. 

That is what this article is about.

In this article:

I illustrate that the globalists USED PEOPLE AND MUSIC to sway the masses IN THE PAST.

I state that the music I mention in this article... WAS USED to sway the masses IN THE PAST.

I illustrate that the globalists USE PEOPLE AND MUSIC to sway the masses NOW.

I illustrate that the masses were easily swayed by the media in the PAST and IN THE PRESENT.


I state the FACT that the media and entertainment business is GLOBALIST RUN.

I illustrate that the media and the entertainment industry is a powerful medium run and used by the globalists YESTERDAY and TODAY.

I illustrate that while the globalist run media and entertainment industry could easily be promoting love as it did in the past by use of the type of songs I mentioned, that instead, the globalist run media is promoting hate and the masses (the world) are allowing themselves to be so easily led to hate because the globalist run media is presently selling hate.

I illustrate that we, the masses ARE the world and out number the globalist. 
Are we NOT the world???

I illustrate that we can choose to NOT be influenced by globalist run media.

I illustrate that we CAN CHOOSE to love not hate.

AGAIN...I illustrate that WE CAN CHOOSE to NOT be influenced by globalist run media, PERIOD!

Love is a choice. Is it not?

For those of you who think that I left Jesus Christ completely out of this article, perhaps you are blind. Go back and re-read this article. 
For those of you who think I am ignorant of who runs the media and the music industry, I have to wonder if you even read this article. 
And for those of you who have given me trouble over Michael Jackson, you obviously didn't read the article either.

Now.... here is the original article...

"We are the world, we are the children 
We are the ones who make a brighter day 
So lets start giving 
There's a choice we're making 
We're saving our own lives 
Its true we'll make a better day 
Just you and me" 

Lyrics from "We Are The World"
Written by: Michael Jackson & Lionel Richie
Single Released - 1985

May I remind easily led we all are? 

A "few" years ago we were led to love by the same forces who are now leading us to hate. The tool is the globalist owned media. This very song, "We are the World" was used to manipulate the people of the world to want brotherhood as that was the short term purpose of "The Plan" for that time period. 

When I watch this video I don't see actors acting.  I don't believe they were acting when they did this recording. Eyes are the mirror of the soul.  What I see is the evidence of souls cleansed by unity of love, of working together for a united purpose of goodwill for other humans regardless of race, religion or nationality. That is what happens when people sing such songs, there is a cleansing effect that changes people's desires, motivations and goals. 

I also wonder as I watch those who are still alive, who did this performance still feel the same way?  Would they come together for a big reunion to do a grand performance for something like the Super bowl or the Olympics?  It's possible you know, a heart touching performance to encourage peace and brotherhood....that is...if peace, and brotherhood WAS the product being sold to you, but it it isn't.

You DO know that the media can change the world by flooding the airwaves with celebrities promoting unity and love, encouraging people to be humane one to another, offering help to one another. The media could also be using celebrities to promote political policies to benefit peace and to help the down trodden.  I am sure there are celebrities who do support such things, but look at who and what is being promoted instead.  

Are you not one of the multitudes of people who has said they would LOVE to see good news promoted?  Did I say MULTITUDES?....hmmmmm. Think about it.. Hasn't every single person you know said that?..that they wish good news was promoted rather than the bad? That is a MULTITUDE of people!

Listen to, the majority WANT good and want to hear good news and you are further motivated to do good when you DO hear good news. But...instead it is the evil that is being promoted these days to get you to accept evil as being the norm.  However...YOU are the norm!!! You are the world....What do YOU want?? BE it! Be that good! Promote that good!

Boycott the product being sold to your spirit and soul by way of the globalist run "Hollywood", mainstream media and publishing houses. They want disunity, hate and war so they can bring you their next product...their global order.  

So....You, one of the multitudes, the MAJORITY, the NORM want to hear good news and you KNOW there is plenty of good news out there...then why isn't good news being promoted?  Because YOU don't own the media...and YOU CONTINUE TO SUPPORT IT. 

Better take a good hard look at the MINORITY that owns the media and ask yourself why you support them and why you allow them into your home to INFLUENCE you, the MAJORITY and your children who are the future "We are the world"!!

Check out this Super Bowl halftime show of 1993.

  And don't go off on some rabbit trail about Michael Jackson being a tool... and don't you use that as a reason to close your eyes and ears to the message here. Of course Michael was used by the Satanic organization, but remember that what you think you know about him is what the SATANIC industry HAS TOLD you!  Who's alive now? He's dead for a reason. How many people in the industry are dead for speaking the truth? There are ones you probably never even Sonny Bono and John Denver. If "they" don't murder you, they DO murder your good reputation. Sometimes their product is worth more to them dead than alive. 

Just for grins, compare the Super Bowl halftime show of 1993

With the Super Bowl shows 20 years later.

In 1993 there was still some degree of goodness.

And now we have this for 'entertainment'. 
The Super Bowl halftime shows are totally blatantly Satanic.

Also compare the opening ceremonies of the 1990's Olympic Games to the Olympic Game opening ceremonies of 2012 and 2014. Use the Internet search engines and see what comes up when you enter: Olympics opening ceremony 2014 Illuminati.

Now that you have compared the above video of the 1993 Super Bowl to the BLATANT Satanic performances being promoted today.  

Which represents YOUR spirit?  Make a choice.  You can't be both. 
Do you really support evil filth? 


The same ones promoting this are also bringing you their version of the evening news and molding your religious, moral, racial, political and ethical views to follow their plan, "The Plan". 

You can't support evil filth and have a pure safe world for you and your children. 

Maybe I am naive, but I believe the majority of the human race have good hearts and are touched when they see what their sacrifice of giving to another human does for that person.  I see a cleansing of the human soul when people do random acts of kindness. When you looked at the video above of 1993 Super Bowl show, did you not see this in the eyes of the children? I did! 

Are we THAT different after 20 years???...or are you just being led by those who run the media? 

Here's another one for you, "Hands Across America" of 1986.

Can you tell me you're not moved with compassion for at least the children? 
Are you not inspired to give, not take, to heal not hurt your fellow man?

Suppose the media started flooding the airwaves with this sort of message. 
Would this not help change the world? Of course it would!

If those who run the media REALLY were humanitarians LIKE US..they would be promoting these sort of messages to encourage these acts. It is obvious what they support and what they serve. They are not like us.

I wonder where those Hollywood stars in that video have their allegiance today. 

Do they still believe "the heart of a stranger beats the same as a friend"? 
Do they really cry when strangers cry?  Should I even have to wonder? 
Maybe they never did feel that way.  All I see is today. 

Who is your neighbor? Who is your brother, your sister? The greatest humanitarian who ever lived gave us that answer as recorded by his friend and witness in the book of Luke 10:25-37. That same humanitarian gave us the recipe for global peace over 2000 years ago. 

Does anyone remember that recipe? 

I seem to remember that LOVE has something to do with it...only, love is a choice. 

No one can make us love one another and treat one another in kindness. 

It ceases to be an act of love.

Love is a choice, a conscious choice that precedes action. Peace is the result of our conscious choice to live love.

So, why are you waiting for someone to bring world peace? Can they MAKE you love?

Here's some "illumination" for you: LOVE supersedes intellect.

No so-called "highly evolved" being can bring world peace because YOU are the one who has this POWER and We have to ALL choose to why not now?

Maybe some of you oldsters remember the 1971 Coca Cola Commercial:

 "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing"

"It's the real thing, what the world wants today." so the lyrics go.  

However....We are the world!  What do WE really want today? 
Do we want what ever "they" tell us we are to want? 
Are we so easily led? 

Look at this next clip. 

Can you imagine this being promoted across the airwaves now?

(It can be you know.)

Maybe this is too wholesome for some of you people of the 21st century who have been marinating in the filth.

Seriously..can you imagine if "Hollywood", the music industry and main stream media sources began flooding us with these sort of messages?  

This ain't happening is it?  You know why? 
Because "The Plan" is war, not peace and brotherly love.  

How can the globalists get you to support their wars if all y'all are all about hugging necks and planning pot luck dinners with your brothers of another color, race, religion or political persuasion?

The NWO group certainly don't want you reaching your hands across America and then ("hell forbid") you reach your hands across into the rest of the world with your good example of humanitarian efforts such as feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, healing the sick. By God, that might bring world Peace!!

It's the things that will get you to support war is what is being promoted.

Can't you see how they are pitting us all against each other?
Peace no longer serves the global plan. The MEDIA and it's NWO owners have replaced the message of brotherly love and compassion with things that will incite you to hate one another and go to war against each other...

So "they" can make you want peace so bad that you will let them provide their solution from war and religious strife...their solution from the VERY strife they created to begin with!!

Consider this...and you know this is true:

The globalist could so easily manipulate the masses back into brotherly love by flooding the air waves with heart warming stories and movies demonstrating brotherly love, but that isn't "The Plan".  It no longer serves the purposes of the NWO globalists to promote the unity of people. Not when they need to break down and divide so they can conquer the people of the world. 

"They" want riots, bloodshed, chaos, war and utter devastation. THEN...they will bring you "peace" and encourage "brotherly love" through their leaders and their shepherds who are real wolves in sheep's clothing. It's a trap.  

I have known since the late 1950's that in the last stages of "The Plan" that the masses would be pushed into racial, religious and political divides escalating into hatred, riots, bloodshed and war. 

How was this to be done?  Take a wild guess....

through the means of the globalist run Hollywood, music industry, publishing houses and mainstream media.

They want civil unrest and they have placed their own people in positions to start the planned riots and chaos. Take a look at the middle east.  The divides and conquers have ALL been set up by the organization I was raised in. 

For all of you who are not in the broils of war in your streets, this is yet to come... if you do not start now and wake up and realize that "The Plan" is to make your street a war zone too. 

America is next! are the victims of being entertained to the point where you have NO MORE COMMON SENSE!  You are the reactionary Pavlov's dogs of the NWO. 

Let me prove it to you. 

"They" have you all trained...

How many years have you sat back in your overstuffed easy chairs complaining about the choices of political candidates which "they" parade before you like some sort of fashion show? You complain and complain about being forced to "choose between the lesser of the two evils", but NO ONE is forcing you....and did you EVER ONCE consider that maybe YOU should be out there running for office??  

Oh...yeah, you don't believe that you can make a difference.
Translation:  WE THE PEOPLE HAVE NO POWER.....(that is what you REALLY mean...right?)

Maybe that is true now, but it wasn't that way even a few short years ago.

1.) "They" have subtly programmed you to believe you HAVE FREEDOM, YAY!! the same time believing you have NO CHOICE!  

2.) They have subtly programmed you to believe that you HAVE FREEDOM, Whoohoo!!
      yet at the same time you believe you have NO POWER!!

      What is it?....are you free or not??  
      Let's choice, no power = no freedom. 
      YOU just gave up YOUR Freedom and YOUR Power!

The next thing is a real clincher...IF you had not had COMMON SENSE programed out of you, you would have known that:

1.) You are "we the people"...YOU run the show here.
2.) "Public servants are SERVANTS. They work FOR you!
3.) You FIRE those who don't do what they were hired to do!
4.) You DO have power to change things and if you have to do it yourself, then DO IT!
5.) NO ONE is keeping you from running for office. 
6.) If enough people had realized all the above facts...this country could have been taken     back LEGALLY and CIVILLY and PEACEFULLY by "we the people" running for office from city council on up to the White House!

You could have done it the "American way" and used our good system of "we the people" to take over the corrupt system, but you didn't.

Now "they" have you set up like reactionary animals to take the next carrot on the string before you....

You have allowed yourselves to be reduced to animals who are programmed to REACT like Pavlov's dogs to the next BIG plan "They" have for you which is Civil unrest and riots. 

"They" don't want you to use your brains and consider that you could legally, peacefully and civilly use the way our system of government is set up to work for you! 

SO SO EASY...SO SO PEACEFUL...running for office yourself to serve your country and fellow man!!!

INSTEAD...."They" will have you reduced to protesting THEM...or begging from them like peasants to a King and his army.

You need to understand that "they" HAVE PLANNED THIS....for you to protest, for you to be in need. It is a set up! 

"Their" people have already infiltrated your clubs and groups to GET you to protest..even "peaceful" ones. "They" have "their" people set up to escalate the peaceful protests into VIOLENCE and riots. This was planned MANY years ago!

Often I think back on the generation of my grandparents. Now,...those people had common sense and morals. (Ahhhh, if only I had a time machine.) It would have been a NO BRAINER to them that if they didn't like their paid representative they'd fire him! If their paid representative turned out to be a liar or a deviant, he'd be fired and probably jailed! He'd be finished and would have to change his name and identity to ever find a decent job ever again and his family would have been shunned. 

- Today is so so very different. A lying, thieving dishonest President is "normal".
- Our children's heroes are dark occult figures.
- Evil has worked it's way into the "norm".
- Our children are more interested in learning how to cast spells on their peers or how best to kill them in the newest super hero video game where they are encouraged to love violence and self rather than love others and give of self. 

It's becoming a very selfish, hostile and angry world we live in. Everyone feels's a me-me generation that puts self above others. All programmed by the NWO. 

Where brotherhood was once preached, now it is thievery and murder. We have been reduced to depravity. 

So, What's next?....and what do I suggest?

What's next is something I will be addressing in my next article.

What do I suggest?....Right now, for starters...

Being aware IS the first step. Take your mind back, your family and your country back.

Unhook yourself from the programming machine you seem married to. Spend time with your family. Make good memories. Memories last forever. You can take those with you. 

Love is a choice that gives and expects no returns. Start by practicing on those closest to you. Choose to do random acts of kindness for your spouse and children with no expectation of response or return. YOU set the example in spite of everyone else, in spite of the fact that it could be years before anyone ever thanks you for your thoughtfulness. 

Before you know it, random acts of kindness become your nature.

Before you know it, your good nature has infected those around you..FOR GOOD. 

Next thing you realize is that you actually have your own mind and your own opinions from your own thinking rather than what was fed to you via the programming machine you allowed to entertain you. 

You are on your way to using "common sense" which is a rare reasoning ability in todays primates. 

Using common sense and reasoning will keep you from being the reactionary NWO Pavlov's dog. 

Love your family, love your neighbor.

Lets promote brotherly love now. Let's work together, not against each other.
Say no to the planned riots, no to instigated racism, no to the instigated religious strife. 

We can at least make the effort to take back this country. Let's have a mass run for every political office from city counsel on up to the White House! 

Lets promote brotherly love NOW. 

No NWO...We the people NOW...what do you say?

Are we not the world? Can we not do better toward each other?
Of course we can. Just say No to the NWO plan and Yes to God's Righteous plan.

The globalist push "an eye for an eye" for their EVIL Satanic plan. Jesus Christ, the greatest humanitarian who ever lived would have us live according to Matthew Chapter 5 which is God's Righteous plan to live by.

The song, "We Are The World" still has a good message as do the other songs in this article. The only lyric I do not like in this song "We Are The World", has to do with a stone being turned to bread. God never turned a stone to bread. Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness to turn stones into bread, but Jesus used the sword of The Spirit which is the Word of God. Jesus stated, "It is written man shall not live on bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God."  Jesus Christ was referencing the 8th chapter of the book of Deuteronomy.

"Hands Across America"
Written by Marc Blatte, Hohn Carney, and Larry Gottlieb

Hands Across America 
Hands Across the land I love 
United we fall 
United we stand 
Hands Across America 
Mother and Father 
Daughter and Son 
Learn to live as one 
I can not stop thinking again and again 
How the heart of a stranger 
Beats the same as a friend 
Learn to love each other 
See these people over there? 
They are my brother and sister 
When they laugh I laugh 
When they cry I cry 
When they need I'll be there by their side 
We are the river of hope 
That runs through the valley of fear 
And there is a lady whose smile shines upon us 
Saying all is welcome here. 
Learn to love each other 
See the man over there? 
He's my brother 
When he laughs I laugh 
When he cries I cry 
When he needs me 
I'll be right there, right by his side 
The kiss never felt so sincere 
Full of countless dreams 
This earth, it never smelt so sweet 
Cradles a song in it's great heartbeat 
Learn to love each other 
See the man over there? 
He's my brother 
When he laughs I laugh 
When he cries I cry 
When he needs me 
I'll be right there by his side

I'd like to teach the world to sing 1972
A creation of Roger Cook, Roger Greenaway, Bill Backer and Billy Davis.
sung by "New Seekers"

I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees
And snow-white turtle doves

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company

I'd like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
Ah, peace throughout the land

(That's the song I hear)
I'd like to teach the world to sing
(That the world sings today)
In perfect harmony

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony

I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees
And snow-white turtle doves

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms
And keep it company

I'd like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills
Ah, peace throughout the land

(That's the song I hear)
I'd like to teach the world to sing
(That the world sings today)
In perfect harmony

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony

We Are The World

Written by: Michael Jackson & Lionel Richie

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

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

We are the world, we are the children 
We are the ones who make a brighter day 
So lets start giving 
There's a choice we're making 
We're saving our own lives 
Its true we'll make a better day 
Just you and me 

Send them your heart so they'll know that someone cares 
And their lives will be stronger and free 
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread 
So we all must lend a helping hand
When you're down and out, there seems no hope at all 
But if you just believe there's no way we can fall well well well well 
Let us realize that a change can only come 
When we stand together as one

[Chorus: x2]

"Let us realize that a change can only come
 When we stand together as one"

So...what is YOUR choice?

Stand together as one in HATE?

Stand together as one in LOVE?
