Playing For Social Change: A Better Place. A beautiful song for peace and equality.

I LOVE this collaborative song and message for peace and equality: A Better Place. It’s catchy and feel-good and beautiful. I wish more women were featured and for longer, and Canada, too–and I also wish they’d mentioned sexual orientation in the text as another way we should all be equal (or another form of oppression) and poverty (perhaps that’s caste?)–but it’s wonderful song and message. It made me feel good to watch; I hope it does you, too.

    which page is this quote from?:
    “a girl who was trying to cope with something horrible that she should never have had to live through at all”
    from Scars

  2. Leah, here’s the entire quote:

    “Other times, I look at my scars and see something else: a girl who was trying to cope with something horrible that she should never have lived through at all. My scars show pain and suffering, but they also show my will to survive. They’re a part of my history that’ll always be there. ”

    And it’s from pages 230-231 of the (hardcover edition) of SCARS.
