Have you seen Alicia Keys’ newest video?
It’s very rare to hear a mainstream artist lyrically explain global issues going on to bring awareness to the masses. In Alicia Keys “We Are Here” song, she not only brings attention to various issues going on in the world but also brings to light the importance of humanity.
Let’s talk about our part / My heart to your heart / Let’s talk about, let’s talk about living / Had enough of dying / Not what we all about/ Let’s do more giving / Do more forgiving / Yeah / Our souls are brought together / So that we could love each other.
Her video has just been released yesterday but has already caused a #weareheremovement all over social media where people are saying why they are here:
“The day I wrote this song, I was sitting in a circle of people of all ages and we were asked, “Why are you here.” Why am I here?? This really hit me on a deep level. I realized no one had ever asked me that question before. As I prepare to give birth to a new child, I can’t help and think about the world I’m bringing my baby into. No matter where we come from, when we see the state of the world today, we can all feel the growing frustration and desire to make a difference. And we all have a voice – we just need to know how to make it heard. I have a vision that I believe is more than a dream, that I know can be our reality.”
Why am I here? I am here to help others understand the importance of how powerful their mind is. I am here to help others understand how important they are. I am here to be a better me, to help others become a better them. I am here to help. I am here to love. I am here to inspire.
What are you here for?
Now signing off with the reminder: Don’t wait for the world to recognize your greatness, live it and let the world catch up to you.
