One of Canada's leading female singers (and a personal favourite of mine), Sarah Mclachlan has launched a new video clip for her song 'World on Fire'.


Her video clip only cost her 15$ to make.


We live in a world where many human beings still do not have enough food, shelter, medication and proper education.


We live in a world where we are all interconnected and we can make personal contributions no matter the scale or type.


"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." (Sir Winston Churchill)


This video clip takes no more than 5 minutes to watch_ if this clip has touched you, pass it around to your friends... sometimes we need to take a moment in our lives and stop and really see what is around us... (and be thankful for what we have- I think we, flickr users, should all be as we've got cameras, computers, access to the net...I think that pretty much says it...)


Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something.




This really puts things into perspective...


If you have taken the time to STOP here, thank you... I hope this image of mine gets the most hits_ even though it's not exactly a photo...




(I have chosen to post this in certain groups_ I know it is not really a photo but please don't remove it from the group(s) and help me spread the word... thank you...)


World On Fire (lyrics by Sarah Mclachlan)


The worlds on fire it's more then I can handle

I'll tap into the water try and bring my share

Try to bring more, more then I can handle

Bring it to the table

Bring what I am able


Hearts are worn in these dark ages

You're not alone in these stories pages

The light has fallen amongst the living and the dying

And I'll try to hold it in

Yeah I'll try to hold it in


I watch the heavens but I find no calling

Something I can do to change what's coming

Stay close to me while the skys falling

I don't wanna be left alone don't wanna be alone


Hearts break hearts mend love still hurts

Visions clash planes crash still there's talk of

saving souls still colds closing in on us


We part the veil on our killer sun

Stray from the straight line on this short run

The more we take the less we become

The fortune of one man means less for some
