Wavin' Flag

There is a sweet four year old in my house that LOVES K'naan's song Wavin' Flag. Whenever he hears the song he dances and sings. No matter what language the version is in he is signing along. I have even heard him signing it when he was suppose to be heart was overjoyed.

Today I got an email with a link to a new version of the song. This version was made to show support for Haiti. The words are powerful and I found tears forming as they sang. The video was also paired with moving photos. It painted the perspective of what has been done and how much more is needed.

Haiti is not the only places that could be spotlighted by powerful words of this song. So many countries are in the same place. Their people are struggling, wondering where their next meal is coming from. Someday they dream of being strong and make some changes to help the ones around them. Strong just like a wavin' flag. As your eyes take in the photos and you hear the powerful words may you see what could be instead of how the world is.
