I Want to Live…….

I Want To Live….

 

There are children raised in sorrow

Sorrow

on a scorched and barren plain,

scorced and barren place

there are children raised beneath a golden sun.

sunflower children

There are children of the water,

seberangi-jembatan-rusak1

children of the sand,

Children of the sand
and they cry out through the universe,

Five children looking down into the camera screaming

their voices raised as one:

Kids-of-All-Races
I want to live,

I want to grow,

I want to see,

I want to know,

I want to share what I can give,

I want to be,

I want to live.

We are standing all together, face to face and arm in arm.working together to change our planet

We are standing on the threshold of a dream.

Happy-Girl
No more hunger,

Child having picnic in park

no more killing,

children-dove-peace-symbol

no more wasting life away.

It is simply an idea and I know its time has come.

I want to live, I want to grow, I want to see, I want to know,

  1. Evita,
    What a wonderful presentation that incorporates everything we learned about diversity in this course. It truly touched my heart! Thank you for sharing.

  2. Evita,
    I love this post. Very touching photos that bring the lyrics to this song to life. Absolutely beautiful.

  3. Evita, you put together this collage of photos beautifully! I also like the way your photos provide a visual to children all over the world. I also enjoyed the song you paired with the photos! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Evita, Your blog is wonderful. I attempted to post pictures; however, when I posted my blog they did not transfer. If you have a chance, please tell me how you did yours. I enjoyed how the pictures reflected what the song said. Thank you for sharing.

  5. This is a wonderful representation. You did a great job of representing diversity and cultures. I didn’t previously know the lyrics to this song, and now I am going to have to listen to it.

  6. This is such an emotional representation. You placed a lot of respect and energy into this. Your representation is powerful and shows how every child is important to society. A job in excellent taste.
