Chapter Sixty-Six

CAN NOT WAIT
[ a song ]


                                  From early days when we are young
                                  We try to get all that we can
                                  Sacrificing our brief freedom
                                  Running over our fellow man
                                  Why not do the thing we like
                                  Instead of do the thing we hate?
                                  Love for our sister and our brother
                                  Cannot wait, cannot wait

                                  We feel good when we receive
                                  But we feel better when we give
                                  And when we love our neighbor
                                  We help our own soul live
                                  We must understand what matters
                                  Before it really is to late
                                  Love for our sister and our brother
                                  Cannot wait, cannot wait

                                  Why live a life we hate
                                  Just to gain material things
                                  And lose our heartís desire
                                  For the emptiness it brings?
                                  Why not do the thing we like
                                  Instead of do the thing we hate?
                                  Love for our sister and our brother
                                  Cannot wait, cannot wait

                                  The search for God and truth
                                  Cannot wait, we best believe
                                  For we eventually find out
                                  Itís better to give than receive
                                  Why not do the thing we like
                                  Instead of do the thing we hate?
                                  Love for our sister and our brother
                                  Cannot wait, cannot wait

                                  From early days when we are young
                                  We try to get all that we can
                                  Sacrificing our brief freedom
                                  Running over our fellow man
                                  Why not do the thing we like
                                  Instead of do the thing we hate?
                                  Love for our sister and our brother
                                  Cannot wait, cannot wait *


Save The Children

Milagro Foundation


DEDICATED TO:  Dhani Harrison and Julian Lennon in honor of the late George Harrison, friend of our Father's beloved children of Bangladesh.  Also dedicated to the Picasso of the guitar, Carlos Santana , founder along with wife Deborah of Milagro Foundation and contributor to a great many charitable efforts; may our guitars gently weep for the sick and hungry children of Planet Earth.


*FootNote:  Inspired by the words and example of the late George Harrison, who shunned the trappings of fame, preferring to view himself as a simple gardener.  Mr. Harrison is reported to have been fond of saying:  "Everything else can wait but the search for God cannot wait, and love one another."  Like a sower of the small mustard seed, which later grows into one of the largest of plants, so Mr. Harrison and his friendsí original effort to bring aid and attention to the plight of the starving children of Bangladesh eventually grew into Band Aid, We Are The World USA For Africa, Live Aid, Comic Relief, Farm Aid and literally hundreds of other entertainment relief efforts.  In honor of the memory of George Harrison and those who have fought the good fight and gone on to their just reward, those of us who remain must continue their work diligently, for the day is far spent and the night is coming soon.
