In just over a week, the global community will celebrate a very important day: the International Day of Peace, otherwise known as Peace Day. Although there are some who will scoff at the idea for one reason or another, we at TheDreamContinued are celebrating it with our hearts and voices and actions. This week's featured artist, Karie Hillery, sums it up in her song, "One World."
One world... it's up to you.
One world... it's up to me too.
One world... just look what love can do.
Karie's song reflects a philosophy shared by many other artists at TheDreamContinued: Being honest about the many problems in our world, but taking responsibility and remaining hopeful that we can create something better. She notes that, as one world, we all share "laughter, joy, pride, and shame" -- the good and the bad, so to speak.
I met Karie when she came down to Los Angeles for our CD release party and MLK birthday bash last January, and though I didn't get to spend much time with her, I can say that she radiated sincerity and optimism. These two qualities clearly shine through in her music. Check out her song, "One World," her website, and her youtube video on our New Artist page.
The youtube video features the song, "Angels." In it, she sings of the everyday angels in our lives. During the production of this project, I have been blessed with meeting many angels. A few are listed on Our Angels page -- but I continue to send my thank yous to many others (including my mom, who has been helping us with some awesome youtube videos).
Each one of us has countless opportunities to be somebody's angel -- or, perhaps to be an "angel of peace." If you haven't already done so, check out the International Day of Peace websites: www.internationaldayofpeace.org
to find out more about Peace Day -- and how you can be an angel of peace.
Peace... pass it on!
