day and the lady said,"You need to watch it but be prepared to cry."
And glutton for punishment that I am, I watched it. And it did get me. Yes, it did.
You may or may not enjoy the vocal renderings of Nickelback's If Everyone Cared
(I tend to love a good angst ridden voice backed up by guitars and drums),
but the story, the words are powerful.
I love the Margaret Mead quote at the end of the song,
"Never doubt that a small group of committed people
can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
And really it got me thinking about how one person, any person can do something big,
if they love people enough.
And on a far more shallow note, how did they come up with the name Nickelback?
But really, that is neither here nor there.
It got me thinking about how Jesus preached revolution with words
like "Turn the other cheek" and "Love your enemies". Crazy things like that.
So I blogged about it today at faithchick.
You can read it here...and be sure grab a tissue before you watch the video.
