“What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No, not just for some but for everyone.”
– Burt Bacharach
When I was a child the Vietnam war raged on the black-and-white TV set while my family fought our own private war.
Every night before bed I sat outside on the back porch and sang this song to myself over and over again.
Lately I find myself singing this song as loudly as I can hoping someone out there is listening.
