"We're The World (USA For Africa)"

There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can't go on pretending...

    The song wad meant for the unfortunate and homeless people in Africa. Michael wrote most of the song with Lionel Richie. Many popular singers in the 80's (the time when it was released) sang the song such as Diana Ross and Stevie Wonder. It was about how the world and its countries are different but there are times that we need to come together and help each other as much as we can and every little bit helps.

    It's a very useless song with hiden satanic meaning coz God did not command us to turn stone to bread but Jesus told us man shall not live on bread alone. Am from Africa and we don't need such donations we only need Jesus

    If doesn't matter where your from,the color of your skin, or any of the other things that stand in ppls way. We are all humans and there should never be a thought to helping others. Do what you can, you NEVER know if it could or will be you! Just saying.....

    We need to help other people from Africa and other countries. We need to raise good money for healthy foods to prevent all other people from dying of starvation. We wanted to give a better life to all people from other countries. We can’t ignore to help other people. When you love your family, you help your family. We are part of the world. Helping others makes the day brigihter. Saving our family from other parts of the world. We’ll make a better day together. We give the foods and shelters to other people from other parts of the world. So, that the people will stay healthy from hunger and thirst. We can make bread for hungry people so, we can help them.
