I love the song, "I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz.
BJ first played the song for me, and I felt like he was singing it to me..."I see that you've come so far to be right where you are," and, "I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily. I'm here to stay to make the difference that I can make."
I thought of myself, "We got a lot to learn, but God knows we're worth it."
I thought of the kind of friend I want to be - make a difference, never give up, give all of my love.
Today is the twelfth anniversary of 9/11. A day when humanity suffered a lot all in one day.
I am very aware of the suffering we cause on each other. We are the only species that could ever commit some of the atrocious things I have seen. We are the only species with enough imagination to be able to hurt each other like we do...
There are no Hitlers or Bin Ladens in the rest of the animal kingdom... Not to mention the things I have seen people close to me suffer...
And still, "God knows we (humans) are worth it," no matter how much we have to learn, "Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake."
