Don’t Turn Away…

Posted by jeremiasx on February 11, 2007

I believe it would be enlightening for us as a society and a nation if we would pay more attention to where our efforts are focused in the world. It would be beneficial as well to have a little more awareness of what the side effects are of our current efforts in Iraq…things aren’t as rosy there as we’d like to believe. This video contains many graphic images, many of which are disturbing, but if we never see the darker side of the truth then we only have half of the truth, don’t we? The video is set to one of my favorite songs…it’s very well done. I give thanks to whomever compiled and posted it.


On the turning away
From the pain and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won’t understand
“Don’t accept that what’s happening
Is just a case of others’ suffering
Or you’ll find that you’re joining in
The turning away”

It’s a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting it’s shroud
Over all we have known
Unaware how their ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we’re all alone
In the dream of the proud.


On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord
Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerized as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night


No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
It’s not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there’ll be
No more turning away?

  1. First, I love Pink Floyd.
    Secondly, I wish everyone could be helped. I donate to my favorite charity, I send soup to our troops.
    However, at times it seems the more we help, the more help is expected, even when it is not direly needed. For some help teaches laziness.
    I belive we are in a point in time where we as a world must weigh the pros and cons of charity.
    The best charity has to become education, teaching people to learn to pull themselves out of bad situations, and achieving higher standards for themselves.
    As it was said, ” give a man a fish, he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, he will eat for a lifetime”

    1. The /center tag does not work in wordpress – they strip that html tag automatically – to resize the embed player or reposition it you have to put it in as part of a table. It can be done – check the wordpress forum.

    2. The Beast knows who Ironic is…does he get money too???
