With a long line of incredible artists from whom we found plenty of inspiration, (Dolly Parton, Annie Lenox & Al Green, Anne Murray, John Mayer) we decided to release our own version of the Jackie DeShannon classic, “Put A Little Love In Your Heart”!
We seem to live in a world where every time we turn on the TV or the radio we’re just bombarded with bad news. We look to social media and it seems as though everyone thinks they have a free pass to bully, harass and be unabashedly cruel to one another for simply having an opinion that’s different from their own.
This song has a timeless message that we all need to be reminded of, now more than ever. Our future is not going to be determined by elected officials arguing over the capricious zeitgeist. It’s going to be determined by how we choose to treat each other, and by how we choose to live our lives.
Regardless of which side of the political isle you find yourself on, and regardless of whether you think we were put here by a higher power, or that we’re merely inevitable consequences of complex chemistry, we are all literally made of the same stuff. Each and every one of us shares a responsibility to BE the better that the world so desperately needs. It’s up to us to treat one another with dignity, respect, and compassion. Especially those we don’t understand.
Isn’t it time that we stopped focusing so much on our differences, and started paying just a little more attention to all the things we have in common? After all, WE’RE ALL WE’VE GOT!
