Dionne Warwick and Gene Pitney both passed on this song when offered it first, although Dionne later sang it in one of her albums. Jackie DeShannon sang it first in 1965. This applies yesterday, today and always.
“WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS LOVE”
This world is in desperate need of LOVE. Love for all life and this world we live in. I am not saying we all will like each other but we can all respect the fact that we can all agree to disagree without killing each other. We are all different. We are all meant to be individuals. But as individuals we should all be able to work with each other without pushing our ideas on each other. This is to keep the love of life and living going in a peaceful safe world. Color, race, nationality, religion, or size or any other reason other than the person is just not a good person should not matter or be used against anyone. And it should not be used as an excuse for doing harm to anyone.
People will have different beliefs and ideas and not get along that is a given but why can’t we walk away from each other if we can’t resolve it. The only reason it is a problem is because too many people try to push their ideas on others for power and money. Greed kills love. In my opinion some of those people will get the power and money anyway because some people have that ambition and work for it. But if you are killed you won’t be able to enjoy it anyway.
How can we judge someone we don’t know because their color or whatever is different? If we don’t know that individual how do we know that they won’t be a wonderful person? We don’t so how do we justify Judgement like that? Plus how many of us can honestly throw stones???? This judgement of others is one of the biggest things that kills love.
We now have our children growing up in violence armed with guns and hate. This is not how children should grow up. How can we stop it? How can we get the world to be at Peace with one another so that everyone can live their life at least with the knowledge that they are safe? I know I am not the only one that wants a PEACEFUL WORLD.
As we all know we have had a few shootings lately. It is horrible. Our Police, Fire, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, AND ALL OTHER SERVICES involved in those fields are there to PROTECT AND HELP US. And maybe once in awhile you come across one that is not but that is not the norm. We need these people and I know I Thank them every day for putting themselves out there in a world that doesn’t have all the love it should. Remember you may need them one day, it can happen to anyone!
I watched the son of a man who was killed just recently get on TV and talk about the love we need not about getting even or revenge. GOD BLESS THIS WISE YOUNG MAN FOR SPEAKING THE TRUTH and NOT LETTING THE HURT AND PAIN HE MUST FEEL BE HIS GUIDE.
Wishing PEACE AND LOVE to our beautiful world!
I will leave this rant with a quote!
“Each day is a gift. Cherish it. Use it wisely. Be grateful for it. Invest your time and energy to enhance your life and improve our world. This is your day. Make it count.”
