A Song For the Whole World
--by mitu915, posted Feb 26, 2008
Usually when listeners call in, you know, they request a song and dedicate it to their sweetheart, or best friend, or a parent, or a soldier overseas. It's a natural thing, to share love for those around us.
But as I listening in, a man called in with a very unusual dedication.
"Hey brother, I'd like to make a song request," he said.
"Sure thing. Who would you like to dedicate to it?" the DJ asked.
"I want to dedicate this song to the whole world."
"Whole world? That's not possible," the DJ replied in a somewhat joking manner. "We only reach a few milion people."
That brief conversation really hit home for me, though. Yes, a song on a radio can only reach those listeners within the local geographic region that covers that frequency. And yet, here was a listener who went beyond our self imposed idea of loving only those who we are supposed to love, and instead, he extended a heartfelt dedication which reached further than his own brother, his own child, his own wife, or father. He sent a song to the universe!
It was powerful.
They say that a butterfly flapping its wings in Texas can create tornado in Brazil; and I say, the waves of generosity are more powerful than the vibrations of sound. One kind act might truly change the world.
If someone can tell me how i can add this audio to the comment i would be happy to that.
Thanks to that heart which merged with the universal love. Mother earth has many such noble souls.
Thanks for posting. i refuse to hate because i know love will do a better job.
