Musicians from around the world come together in song to speak up for equality and social justice. Whether they are performing from backyards, city street corners, by the oceanside, or in a park, they all give voice to the rights of people everywhere to live in freedom, dignity and peace. "If you feel it, through the music, we can make this world a better place."

    The question at the end of the video asks How to make this world a better place? They said it soooo well: FREEDOM. Freedom to make our own decisions concerning our own individual health, freedom to travel, to congregate, to experience life to the fullest without mandates, surveillance, and unconscionable censorship. Music is not even available to all right now. How do we escape the grip of encroaching tyranny? Keep music in our hearts.

    We are truly one world, one people. Music crosses borders and allows us to sing the joy of what we wish for ourselves and our family of beings across the globe. The rhythm shouts for the harmony of more voices to be heard to make our world a better place, a place where there is support for dignity and peace and freedom for our family everywhere.

    I love Playing for Change which I discovered on Youtube some time ago. The songs chosen and the participation by so many around the world is really inspiring. Citizens of the World Unite! When one thinks about it for a minute, we are born wherever our parents are and our citizenship is granted based on that fact. So a person born just a mile away may not enjoy the same rights etc. Or be able to cross that line just based on the accident of their birth. The leaders of our Nation/State system insist that this is how it should be, but they all seem to be able to move money and goods for the most part freely. But the people are stuck in their place of birth. Seems odd and makes one wonder what things would be like if we weren't so territorial as enforced by the powers that be.

    It would be fun to have a conversation on this forum about what each person thinks, in very concrete terms, no matter how big or small, what it would take to make this world a better place. Every time I am in a store where employees wear a name tag, I make a point of referring to the person serving me by name. It almost always evokes a smile. Yesterday the clerk in the grocery store where I was shopping said that hardly anybody refers to her name.

  • Briar

    I saw ๐Ÿ‘€ Playing for Change in Boston, it was astounding! I wondered if the old gentleman who was a founding member, had passed away. . He was so amazing, as were all. He was from New Orleans. I BELIEVE!
