World on Fire

Rosanna posted a link to a community list I'm on to Sarah McLachlan's new video, World on Fire. I've been a fan of her's for a long time -- I enjoy her songs and lyrics and have often been moved to tears listening to her albums.

First, the video is super inspiring. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. My friend Travis (who is in the picture with me) said it even moved him to tears. The video depicts how Sarah spent her money to make the video -- primarily toward developing countries. The video made no requests of anyone for funds and even goes so far as to indicate they aren't asking for funds. This philanthropic gesture is a wonderful reminder of generosity.

Then I was further inspired by the lyrics, especially this line:
Try to bring more, more then I can handle
Bring it to the table
Bring what I am able

It is the last line above that inspired my words today.
