"We are love. We are One.
We are how we treat each other when the day is done.
We are peace. We are war.
We are how we treat each other and nothing more...
...Tell me what it is that you see.
A world that's filled with endless possibilities?
Heroes don't look like they used to,
they look like you do."
I have to admit, this song really touched my core. Hit the core and then infiltrated my brain. It was hard to get this song out of my mind actually. There were many different paths my thoughts travelled when thinking how I wanted to interpret the lyrics. I ultimately chose to go with the idea of peace, war, and heroes coupled with a photo of a dizzying multitude of American flags honoring our fallen soldiers. Who in my mind "give in such a way that has no end". It seems we are inundated with the idea of "paying it forward". It's a wonderful idea. But how many of us actually put this theory into practice?
...We are how we treat each other and nothing more."

Next week's song is an oldie. As in 1970's old. You can have a few laughs with the song, or you can take on the message of intolerance and exclusion. Lots of possibilities with this classic. Next week's song is "Signs" by the Five Man Electrical Band...

Thanks for joining in at Song-ography. Take some time, visit some of the blogs that have participated. I promise you will be awed and inspired. I will be stopping by myself, and probably be smacking my head while thinking "Why didn't 'I' think of that??!!??".
