# 6 /100 Reasons I Blog4Peace / What's going on ?


I was looking for something to inspire me to get back to my Peace blog . I started this blog list thinking I would be posting about things that give me Peace hopefully giving someone a little peace too along the way. 
What I realized is I needed to focus on a wider view ... What could help make the world More Peaceful ? Who is out there trying ? 
How can I help change the world for the better , one person at a time? I can help spread the word of Peace !
Show ...What's going on.
You can too . Be a Peace Builder , One song , one blog ,one tweet with the hashline #Peace ,  one Share , one smile , one hug can make the difference . 
I saw this video of John Legend singing one of my very favorite songs "What's going on " by my favorite singer Marvin Gaye. This song sadly is as needed today as it was nearly 30 years ago .... Generation X Y Z need to pay attention . He had the young people singing with him and really feeling it ! Let's hope this will help others to Look to see What is Going ON , and make changes for the better. Let's hope there will be some Peacekeepers out of them.
John Legend, with a little help from the kids from Duke Ellington School for the Arts, launched www.whatsgoingonnow.org

I have spent my life wondering "What's going on?"
How did the American Monopoly get so powerful?
How can a country that was built on freedom have racism still going on so strongly?
How can people spend millions on unnecessary things while watching others starve and live in Poverty around them?
How can we call ourselves God fearing people , but refuse to take care of what was given to us as stewards ? 
   Here is a great video of another song that still brings an important message .They put it with a video about people that have brought about change and changed the course of history as we've known it.Let's add to this list by changing the
 future!
 

This is the last for today . Was Marvin Gaye a prophet ? He sure predicted a lot of things a long time ago.  
lyrics
Oh, mercy mercy me
Oh, things ain't what they used to be
No, no Where did all the blue sky go?
Poison is the wind that blows From the north, east, south, and sea
 Oh, mercy mercy me 
Oh, things ain't what they used to be No, no
Oil wasted on the oceans and upon our seas Fish full of mercury
Oh, mercy mercy me Oh, things ain't what they used to be No, no Radiation in the ground and in the sky
Animals and birds who live nearby are dying 
Oh, mercy mercy me 
Oh, things ain't what they used to be What about this overcrowded land? 
How much more abuse from man can you stand? 
My sweet Lord My sweet Lord My sweet Lord 

Thanks for stopping by please click share and keep the peace message going.
May Peace and Blessing be upon You and our world.
