Day 19: We Can Make A Difference

So, umm, yeah…I got totally delayed with this.  But, well, I’m back and we can get the ball rolling again on our Hundred Days of Music challenge.  Once again, for today, I chose a song with an uplifting tone and a great message.  I know there are people who find these music stupid or not their cup-of-tea.  That’s your opinion on that, but songs like these help others get through the day or whatever problems they may be facing with.

The song I picked for today is from Jaci Velasquez and it’s one of the most beautiful songs I have heard today (though the day is just getting started).  The title of the song is We Can Make A Difference.  It’s a very redundant message, I know.  It’s something we’ve all been privy to hear, especially during campaigns where they say our vote matters.  But, as cliched as the phrase may be, it is true and you don’t need to do something big to make a difference.

An act, no matter how small, can make a difference.  As I like to quote (from the Disney movie Mulan): ‘A single grain of rice can tip the scales’.  It only takes a small drop of water to create a ripple in a silent pond.  You don’t need to take up a public office if you want to “help” people.  You can do that just being a regular citizen, if that is what you really want.

If all of us takes on the challenge of making a world a much better place, if all of us work hard to create that utopia, then we can do it.

Below are the lyrics to this song:

We live in a dream
If we really think
Everything’s alright

This world is in need
Crying out to be freed
We gotta shed some light

Teach the world to smile
And hear angels sing
Feel the breath of God
And the power it brings
It’s time to come together, you and I
And share the love of Jesus Christ

We can make a difference
We can make a change
We can make the world a better place
We can make a difference
We can make a change
We can make the sun shine through the rain
(Shine on through the rain)

Do you know a man
Who’s needing a hand?
Don’t ya wall on by

A sister is sad
Lost all that she had
We gotta take the time

Look around the world
It will testify
Some have empty hearts
Some have hungry eyes
God can heal the suffering through our hands
Find compassion, take a stand

We can make a difference
We can make a change
We can make the world a better place
We can make a difference
We can make a change
We can make the sun shine through the rain
(Shine on through the rain)

There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling". Also, a YouTuber dealing with video games and gaming.
