One

I was just reading some blogs and listening to my itunes and I was again struck by the power of the words to U2's "One". Below I have posted the lyrics to the parts that really stick out for me. I hope you enjoy. I copied these from http://www.macphisto.net/u2lyrics/One.html

Selections from "One"
One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night
One love
We get to share it
Leaves you baby if you
Don't care for it

We're one, but we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other
One...

Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt
One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
Sisters
Brothers
One life
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other

*I am especially struck by the notion, "We get to carry each other." I could not have said it better myself. We get to carry each other and together we can change the world!

I believe we are all "one." I also believe we do only have one life so I think we have to make the most of it.

"Carry each other"

That's a nice ideal.

I love the blogging world and the support here. We carry each other even when we can't carry ourselves...

Thanks for the reminder!
