Feed the World

Last year, I shared some of my favorite Christmas songs as I've been doing this year as well. There is one that's very special to me and I'm sure I've mentioned this song several times, "Do They Know It's Christmas". Why do I love this song so much, well partly it's because it reminds me of my teenage years, which I think I consider my "glory days". Back then, it inspired me to want to help my fellow man. Fast forward to present day, and still this song inspires me. Recently I was reading some news articles on the internet when I ran across a Best/Worst list of Christmas songs. And there near the top of the Worst list was this song. I was crushed. How could anyone not like this song? Apparantly, it's not cool to think of starving children at Christmas. Well, could there be a time any more appropriate that at Christmas time, I ask? What other time of the year should we do more for those less fortunate? I find this thought disgusting! Yes, Jesus birth is the reason we celebrate Christmas, but let's not forget that his message was/is equally as important. Love one another, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, welcome the stranger, visit the sick/imprisoned. What better time than during the celebration of his coming?

Feed the World. Let them know it's Christmastime again.

I don't think it was the sentiment expressed that got this song on the "worst" list;)
