As today marks the 3 year Anniversary of Super Storm Sandy and I am listening to a song “Keep Changing the World” by MIKESCHAIR that I played many times when people from our community and from all over the country came to help us.
So as I reflect today I am grateful and very thankful for all the folks that came here to our area to help make a difference in the lives of others and Change OUR World for the better. There are so many people to thank and I know I won’t do it justice as we had 100 students per week come to help for an entire month and then facility and students kept coming afterwards as well as business professionals from companies, mayors, senators from Katrina areas came, CNN Reporter who covered Katrina in her own home town, consultants that specialize in nature disasters, our local “Pink and Blue” boots on the ground as I like to call the local folks and organizations that were created out of necessity who knew the needs and acted quickly, the list goes on an on which I documented in my blog so you can read about these special people so you see why I can’t name all their names. But you know and I know who you are so THANK YOU and may God Bless you as you continue to help others in need.
So folks keep being YOU and keep Changing the World and please say a prayer or lend a helping hand for those that are still not back in their homes 3 years later.
Below are some of the lyrics of the song.
“Keep Changing The World”
There are children without homes
But we just move along
To take care of our ownThere’s so much suffering
Just outside our door
A cry so deafening
Oh, we just can’t ignoreTo all the people who are fighting for the broken
All the people who keep holding onto love
All the people who are reaching for the lonely
Keep changing the worldTake a look around
Before the sun goes out
What’s lost can still be found
It’s not too late nowIt only takes one spark
To make the fire burn
So reach inside your heart
And let this be the startI see you changing the world, I see you changing the world
Every boy, every girl, step up, step up
I see you changing the world, I see you changing the world
Every boy, every girl, step up, step upSee the sun coming up, it’s a brighter day
Share the world right now, it’s a better way
So lend a hand, join the fight, ’cause time is ticking away
I’ll keep changing the worldKeep changing the world
(I see you changing the world, I see you changing the world)
Keep changing the world
(I see you changing the world, I see you changing the world, step up)
