American Idol gives back may prove to be one of the most extraordinary events in the history of television. Ordinary People can produce extraordinary results. It is far better to start something, to give something, to help someone, then to complain about the reasons that an event in helping another has taken place. Ancient Chinese proverbs suggest and guide that "The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it."
This event was not about Clay Aiken or Bono or the reasons why the event happened. This event was about real life struggle, hope, and survival for children and people who are living in extreme poverty conditions. The event was about how together we can accomplish anything. If you look at any photos of those persons that are living under the duress of extreme poverty, that are starving and in some cases dying. Look into their eyes; no matter what country they come from, what their cultural is, or what color they are, they all look the same. They have NO HOPE!
The difference between the impossible and possible lies in each person’s determination, each person’s willingness to help another, each person’s human compassion for the weakest of humankind. It was spoken by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
We are all interconnecting branches to each other. The conditions that we face and those of us who choose to help another, only serves to strengthen humanity. Joyce Sequiche Hifler wrote” If we can envision life without a particular problem we can turn our minds to real change and have it happen. “
American Idol should be congratulated including the Judges and those competitors who thought of others on that night. Those stars of fame and fortune that not only appeared on the show, but also gave of themselves and gave to this great cause. Those companies like Ford, Coca- Cola, AT & T, All State, Exxon Mobile, Con Agra Foods, myspace.com, News Corporation, iTunes, and CPEF. Ellen Degenerous was funny and I loved her style when she advised those friends of hers that watch American Idol that they can afford to give! She was more then generous with her own personal donation of $100,000.
So far 60 million dollars has been raised, that is 60 million dollars more! Then last week that those people in dire need have available to them! (Celebrity Spider reported this date that American Idol gives back has raised and surpassed 60 million dollars)!
I think that if American Idol and their partners choose to do this they can dream bigger for next year, by allowing contributions and donations to be from all over the world! I think that the banks can also contribute! With the surplus they report annually.
The Late Great Senator Robert F Kennedy once reflected that “It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world."
(Casey). To the world your acts of kindness, generosity and your intent may not be deemed worthy or of substance, to one person you are the very source of their hope, of their better tomorrow. All those that contributed and gave are allowing another to live!
It was written by Emerson “It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.” To be great is to be misunderstood.” (Emerson)
