Where is the love? A world full of people killing and dying. A world full of violence and war. People without respect for each other. Love? That is what the world doesn’t have. Lack of thinking in our society, hatred, and violence that have taken over the world. People ask where the love is, it’s because a lot of us don’t get respect from people who have higher standards than us. This question help us realize the kind of world we are living in and it’ll make us think if this is the world we want to continue living in. Everytime you judge someone by the color of their skin or their background, ask yourself where is the love? People are becoming more selfish that they forget about being human and helping others in need instead of making wars.
The song “Where is the love” by Black eyed peas helps us to understand what things are happening in this world. It shows us that the world are full of criticism and discrimination. The song is telling us that the world does not have equality. It’s a world that judge us by the color of our skin, or languages that we speak. The world we are living in right now is based on money we have,skin colour, the language you speak, and your gender. If we think of it, is it the world we want to live in? There’s a part of the song saying “most of us only care about money making” “selfishness got us following the wrong direction”.
They don’t realize that youth are influenced and being taught in a bad way. While they grow older they are being taught about violence, criticism, and discrimination, and this influence them to do the same thing. A part of the song is saying “wrong information always shown by the media” “infecting the young minds faster than bacteria” “kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema”. We don’t realize that the youth see the bad things happening around the world. Kids will be acting the same way they see in the cinema, the tv, or the world they live in.
If you come to think of it, don’t you think that the world is all about money now? We don’t think about our society (and rather think of yourself). We don’t see that other people in the world doesn’t have any shelter, food and clothes. I think the world need better people to help others in need, not just wasting your money for the things you want. We should not base our society by how rich you are or the color of your skin, we should have equality.
If we can come together and accept one another for who we are, where we come from, and what we represent, then maybe the world can still be fixed. We only got one world and we should be helping each other to make this world better. We should stop racism, criticism, terrorism, and discrimination. One world is all we got, and let’s make that world the place we all want to live in, with equality and by loving each other.
