Tell Me Why ?. A Chidren’s Tribute


Tell Me Why

In my dream, children sing
A song of love for every boy and girl
The sky is blue and fields are green
And laughter is the language of the world
Then i wake and all i see
Is a world full of people in need

Tell me why(why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something i have missed?
Tell me why (why) cause I don’t understand
When so many need somebody
We don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

Everyday i ask myself
What will i have to do to be a man?
Do i have to stand and fight
To prove to everybody who i am?
Is that what my life is for
To waste in a world full of war?

Tell me why(why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something i have missed?
Tell me why (why) cause I don’t understand
When so many need somebody
We don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

tell me why? tell me why?
tell me why? tell me why?
just tell me why, why, why?

Tell me why(why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something i have missed?
Tell me why (why) cause I don’t understand
When so many need somebody
We don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

Tell me why (why,why,does the tiger run)
Tell me why(why why do we shoot the gun)
Tell me why (why,why do we never learn)
Can someone tell us why we let the forest burn?
(why,why do we say we care)
Tell me why(why,why do we stand and stare)
Tell me why(why,why do the dolphins cry)
Can some one tell us why we let the ocean die?
(why,why if we’re all the same)
Tell me why(why,why do we pass the blame)
Tell me why (why,why does it never end)

Can some one tell us why we cannot just be friends?

Tell Me Why” is taken from “Declan” album, Declan Galbraith.

“We Adults are the Models of the Children”

The song and the lyrics, which is a moving reality, the photos,actually happend and the very emotional graphic shared to me by Ray, and the boy who sang the song with so much feelings deep in his heart, struck my heart so much and for the love of all children in our world, this blog is my tribute to all of them.  I wish for a better World to live in, for us all, for our children and for our children’s children.

Why can’t we just be Friends?

    Chidren pleads …Tell me why? Why’s the world full of wars…. why do we ruin our beautiful world?Why’s the world full of hatred? Why can’t we all just be one? why can’t we not accept each other?I suppose we adults are responsible to answer all these. Are we able to answer all these why’s?”Our children are our future, for a better, free, and healthy ” WORLD” we live in…..”

    What philosophy does one live by, what are the system of ethics, as there are differences there are different why’s…. so why does the world turn… are there answers?

    Hoping for the future in our WORLD that there will be lesser or no more”HATRED AMOUNG PEOPLE AND GREED” which are dominating and all these,one could feel it everywhere. For some is the lack of acceptance.” Tell me why we can’t just be friends?

    Very emotional and moving… Human nature hasn’t changed much over the centuries. There have always been those who will ignore the distress of others, some who will help, and some who will simply take advantage and make things worse. As we are in a world that is more and more globalized we need to understand the concept of compassion for those that are in urgent need. Lack of compassion and understanding is at the core of the challenges in our world. Most people think that someone else will take care of something so they can ignore it and walk on by….. This is SOOOO common. A teenager is bashed at a bus stop while 10 commuters look on….. A woman is assaulted and stabbed at a crowded bus station and even though there were at least 100 direct witnesses no one steps forward….. People become homeless from earthquakes, tornadoes, etc…. No one wants to get involved any more. “It’s not my problem, I don’t want to get involved etc etc” This is not good enough. Nobody wants to get involved, everybody expects someone else to take care of it. But you know what, that “someone” doesn’t always come. It is up to us as individuals to bring compassion back into our lives and be better people. Don’t be ignorant, don’t be oblivious to the needs of others, if people were to change this one small thing about themselves as individuals, then collectively we can change the world, even if it’s a little bit of ‘good’ at a time.

    We come from different socio-economic levels. We come from different cultures and ethnic groups. We are all different ages and backgrounds. Society is a bit schizophrenic and tends to dictate what is normal, if you don’t conform to their standards, they label you. There’s racist, greedy, up themselves, the list goes on, type people. It’s vicious. Just have to sift through the thorns to find the roses. There are alot of good, genuine and down to earth people in the world too despite the many hardships they experience. I have no time for the first three… wouldn’t it be grand if everyone could just be accepting of one another?

    Good Morning Connie and to all,You’re welcome Connie… THANKS so much for your nobles Engagements… Your space is example for all us…The Children, all the children of the World are the reflection of the Future… For the love that we devote to our Mother Earth, we must protect and offer to all the children a life and not a survival, to give them the luck to construct themselves, and downstream, to construct a World Better, based on values that they do not can buy, but that express themselves by the positivity under all its forms: *** Children, who are blossom & smiling, who know of words suffering and sadness only their definition for never to have lived them; *** a Green Earth, where all the ecosystems are in symbiotic balances with the regeneration bio-geochemistry; *** a human activity that places the preservation of the environment in front of the gain and that constructs itself on ecological futuristic technologies who are wonderfully merged into the decor of a healthy Environment…Have a Great, Happy and Blessing Day everyone, Bye-Bye and see you!!!…Take Care…

    For some, have immense hatred against the others for so many reasons, lack of understanding andacceptance, it’s really sad. For the sake of the children’s future, for our environment and for us, why don’t we build within ourselves compassion and understanding? Look around you!Thank you so much Kimi, Natural, Seth, Valerie and John for your beautiful thoughts and great support for my blogTake care …

    I wanted to relate everyone about my engangement of helping,HELPLESS children. Valerie recently I mentioned you about a young boy. It’s a big success for me, fighting for over a year, the boy is now taken back to his country with the help of the authorities I contacted. It’s a joy for me with this success. About a couple of day ago I got a message from this young lad.. thanking me and another one who helped me as well with it. The young boy then way 15 and now going 17 and now trying to pave his own way

    It’s a joy for me to know that this boy we’ve hepled to get out of his misseries caused by an egoistic parent is over. He’s now paving his own way and trying his best to survive in a good way and I hope that he’ll follow his route in a good way. Now he’s studying. …. “Tell Me why”

    Well, I just wanted to come by and check in on you, see what may be new with you. I am thinking that it may be about that time to dust off your page, bang away on your keyboard and give us an update. Huh? Huh? What do you say? 🙂

    His words through this song, are still today a message that needs to be heard through his Angelic voice through out the world. What we all need is to walk in each others’ shoes (as scary and depressing as it would be), to empathize with the other’s position, situation, upbringing, life experiences and feelings. Empathy leads to respect and caring for each other, and that is the sure path to peace. It’s frightening to see life through someone else’s experience, makes our boundaries and “truths” fuzzy instead of solid.

    as individuals against all poverty and cruel acts we are not very strong those in power are but choose not to get together and help as they are too greedy there would be enough food and wealth in this world if we all helped each other but that will never happen as we are human and some of us are compassionate and care and others indifferent and some actually cause the problems with glee so sadly we as individuals would love to help but have no power to do so and have to watch while children and adults suffer prayer is not enough and the suffering goes on xx jen

    This is a reblog from my old post …. my tribute and love for children specially those in need.
    It’s such a good feeling to have shared a help to a helpless child and for parent who have never realized what he or she was doing was affecting their children. I’m so happy that this certain person I’ve come to help with, have really changed and was able to realize the mistakes done which were affecting the two children. I think some small help to children and to adult alike ( when dealing with children) will mean more than a lot……
    Doing little things for children ,at home, at the neighborhood or children around us who are in need of our little help will mean a lot.
