The More We Serve Together…

Devon Harris: Yes, I Can | Verizon FiOS1 News – Long Island.

I must acknowledge the ingenious way Mr. Snowden has creatively woven “the common thread” that runs through the fabric of humanity so beautifully. My knee-jerk reaction to this video clip calls for the sharing of the words to a song I was taught as a primary school pupil in Sierra Leone, West Africa.

“The more we are together, together, together, the more we are together,
the happier we shall be.
‘Cause your friends are my friends and my friends are your friends.

The Huddle!

The Huddle!

The more we are together the happier we shall be.”

My apologies to the writer as I take the liberty to further tweak the original song (which reads online as “get together”) to declare, “The more we work together, the happier we shall be!”  When we unselfishly give of ourselves for the common good, comfort and advancement of our children and families, this seemingly mammoth job is quite easily done.

I am honored to be the recipient of unwavering support from those who undoubtedly exemplify outstanding leadership in their respective areas of specialization. Your Time For Creative Empowerment, Inc. thanks you; the youth we serve thank you!

    • This is why I will, for as long as I live, continue to do all in my power to connect the dots of humanity. There is so much we all have in common that we can celebrate and build upon. It is through this process that we can truly claim to be our brothers’ and sisters’ keeper regardless of what part of the world we were birthed. I love this! Thank you for sharing Terri.

      Are there others out there who can relate to the song or the idea of working together for the common good of others?
