I hope this message finds a place with some people. I am shocked to log on today and see all of this division. Especially in a place where I thought most were of like-mind, or at least somewhat like minded.
Don't you guys see? This is what they want. They are creating a with us or against us atmosphere and it is working.
They will use this economic plight to start a full-out war and if we don't shape up it is going to be a war that will involve everyone. History has shown us that this is true. It is time to change the world. Not through violence, but through indifference to their agendas and with compassion for everyone, not just the Israelis... Or the Palestinians... Or the Indians... Or the Pakistanis.
I'm waiting on the world to change, but I realize that it takes effort on my part to change my attitude.

"Waiting On The World To Change"

Me and all my friends
We're all misunderstood
They say we stand for nothing and
There's no way we ever could

Now we see everything that's going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don't have the means
To rise above and beat it

So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It's hard to beat the system
When we're standing at a distance
So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change

Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They would have never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on their door
And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want

That's why we're waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It's not that we don't care,
We just know that the fight ain't fair
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

And we're still waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting waiting on the world to change
One day our generation
Is gonna rule the population
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change
-John Mayer

I just wanted to say....

That this, and "How Far We've Come" are my favourite songs.
...That make me think of all of the evil, corruption, and bad stuff in the world..


But, maybe this song has a different enough feel that might give people hope.

I know how you feel. When I first joined ATS I was excited because it was a place where I felt that I could talk freely about things. As I would read the posts in the different threads I quickly saw how mean some people are on here.

United we stand, divided we fall is something that everyone on ATS should keep in mind.

That is a good song also. I can't really put either in my favorite category, though.
I don't have such a category. It depends on my mood. And when I logged on today and saw all of the BS threads Israeli Vs Paliestinian I immediately thought of John Mayer.
Food for thought.

Peace
