For my last episode of midweek music break, I thought we might kick things up a notch.  ‘Cause sometimes you just have to kick a little…

Our choices as parents have consequences that last a lifetime—our kids’ life times.  Choose what you do and how you live wisely.  Your kids deserve it.

No child deserves to be abused. No conscience should tolerate knowing, or even suspecting, and doing nothing to stop it.

Child abuse is real, it’s rampant, and it can and should be stopped.

Don’t wait until it’s too late.

Just don’t wait.

Like any art form, music is a form of communication.  For some of us, the lyrics—the words—are the most communicative aspect.  For others, the music itself has a voice of its own.

I wish I could say whether the music communicates the same message of compassion that the lyrics do, but for me the lyrics are enough.

Bullying is never okay. It should never be tolerated. Love is the ultimate renewable resource.

In the past I have occasionally linked to some music videos on YouTube.  This is the primary way I make use of my blog platform’s multimedia capabilities.  But it’s been a long while since I have done so.  So, for the month of February, I’m going to make it a habit.

This particular video was made after the Oklahoma City Bombing as a dedication, but I chose Garth Brook’s “The Change” for my first Midweek Music post because I believe this song applies to all the ways we can reach out and show our love.  As an advocate, sometimes I get discouraged by how little changes, and how much there is to do.  The fact is I do want to change the world (though, I have no expectation that I’m doing so single-handedly).  But, that kind of change is difficult.  Progress can be slow.  There can be regressions and reversals.  Sometimes the best thing we can do as advocates is to be sure, whatever results from our efforts, that we continue to try, continue to love, and don’t become so jaded that the world changes us.

As long as we still try, the change will happen.
