Why can’t we save the world?

Rogers, Randy.jpg

Eric Clapton sang:
If I could reach the stars/ I’d pull one down for you
Shine it on my heart/so you could see the truth
That this love I have inside/ is everything it seems
But for now I find, it’s only in my dreams
That I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You will think my love was really something good
Baby, if I could, change the world
In a song, it sounds easy to do, doesn’t it? Change the world. Reach the stars and all of that jazz. If it were just that easy.
