Driving to work one morning with the sun shining in my eyes as I drive over a blind rise, this song comes on the only radio station I listen to, 5fm.
This is unusual because the song is not new by any means and been around 7:30am on the Gareth Cliff show, it ment one of two things:
- either it was the “oldies” section of the show or
- Gareth Cliff actually liked the song
Either way the song left an impression on me. Although I had heard the song a few years before, when the BEP’s were just starting to make it big, the song now took on a different meaning.
The song gave meaning to what I was trying to do with my “community project”. I was trying to make a difference and show people that to look after someone else is not only show love to God and the other person, but to show love for yourself. Thereby creating a contagious effect that people would be infected with the good feeling you get by helping out someone else.
In the spirit of giving and paying forward, I say “Thank You” to the BEP’s for having the courage to do the song and making it an anthem for my project. In the process I hope I don’t get sued for calling it by the song title or using the artwork as a symbol of hope, help and love.
