The Rape of the World
Tracy Chapman Lyrics


Mother of us all
Place of our birth
How can we stand aside
And watch the rape of the wold

This the beginning of the end
This the most heinous of crimes
This the deadliest of sins
The greatest violation of all time
Mother of us all
Place of our birth
We all are witness
To the rape of the world

You've seen her stripped mined
You've heard of bombs exploded underground
You know the sun shines
Hotter than ever before

Mother of us all
Place of our birth
We all are witness
To the rape of the world

Some claim to have crowned her
A queen
With cities of concrete and steel
But there is no glory no honor
In what results
From the rape of the world

Mother of us all
Place of our birth
We all are witness
To the rape of the world

She has been clear-cut
She has been dumped on
She has been poisoned and beaten up
And we have been witness
To the rape of the world

Mother of us all
Place of our birth
How can we stand aside
And watch the rape of the world

If you look you'll see it with your own eyes
If you listen you will hear her cries
If you care you will stand and testify
And stop the rape of the world

Stop the rape of the world
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
Mother of us all
Mother of us all

CALL FOR CARE!
To all the Health Care Workers and Public Health Individuals!
1. Our objective should be to help the community improve their health.
2. We should also uphold our Oath and "Do No Harm."
3. We should not be shaming healthy people into wearing a mask.
4. We must inform people on the available data, not spread fear and false senses of security.
5. We need to report the true numbers of convalescence (time spent recovering from an illness or medical condition, recuperation).
6. The stress that is being imposed on the general population is not healthy.
7. We need to share proven immune boosting interventions because there will always be another virus. They evolve just as the human race does.
8. We need to share with the public that we are all individually a diverse universe with bacteria, virus and microbes all working synergistically to create a magnificent array of processes which sustain our life in the world full of germs.
9. We need to inform the public that the host will feed the organisms whatever we decide to feed ourselves.
10. We need to inform the public that if you fill your bellies with naturally grown foliage, your universe will reward you with a long and healthy life.

To my fellow humans:
You should not intimidate your fellow human.
Please remember the golden rule:
"Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself."
The gold is the rule, it is it's own reward!
"If you don't want other people making decisions
for you, you should not be trying to make them for
other people."

Listened to Tracy as a little girl now I am a woman still listening, her music her voice her tone her lyrics music for my soul. Bless everyone who sees this, I pray that no matter who you are or where you are, I pray you have good health I pray that you are happy and enjoy this life but also have the strength to overcome the obstacles that face us. Be kind always don’t let the cold hearted make your heart cold. Everything that happens is only temporary you will get through the hard times, just hold on it’s just another hurdle to jump and never stop jumping. Lots of love from a stranger. xoxo
