God Bless the World
As I was driving down the road one day near where I live, I saw a roadside business sign that read “God Bless the World” and I was quite struck by the contrast between that sentiment and the God Bless America that we hear so often.
The World Trade Center was not simply an American tragedy; it truly was a worldwide disaster.
Unfortunately, opinions have become so polarized that there seems to be no reasonable dialog, no true search for understanding, no seeking for peace; instead we look to place blame, and the result is hate in equally disastrous proportions to the event itself.
A few years ago, I finally put these thoughts together and created this song. It attempts to remind us all that there is something greater than our own reactions, some wider view that can be adopted. It is offered in the hopes that we will all come to our senses and seek peace. It can be a reality, not just a dream.
