    Today I take pause for the cause,
    Today I join the ranks of doers,
    forget all the talk!
    We could go on and on about
    who did who wrong,
    point fingers in this global debate
    of the weak and the strong-
    But it all comes down to
    'what you gonna do?'
    Starving peoples can't eat our philosophies,
    nor wear our rage as shoes.
    We've gotta raise our voices skyhigh
    so justice could fly high-

    Imagine yourself sick with AIDS
    without a doctor around-
    Imagine yourself starving & hungry
    in a place where nothing grows out of the ground-
    Imagine children so weak from malnutrition
    they can't brush flies away-
    Imagine,-
    'bout thirty thousand of them died
    between yesterday and today-
    Imagine what they would do if they
    could go through your garbage-
    what's rubbish to you would probably be a life salvaged!

    But today is different.
    Today you've got a chance to be the difference!

    PLEASE CALL JUNE 12TH AND 13TH TO TELL SECRETARY O'NEILL TO SUPPORT DEBT CANCELLATION FOR IMPOVERISHED COUNTRIES at the G8 FINANCE MINISTERS MEETING

    CALL: 202-622-0190

    Tell the operator that you want to:

    Welcome Secretary O'Neill back from Africa and let him know that the American people are behind him supporting debt cancellation for impoverished countries.

    Ask him to use his influence at the G8 Finance Ministers meeting to push for definitive debt cancellation without harmful World Bank and IMF conditions.

    I just called and it took less than a minute. I did exactly as described above, asked the operator if she wanted my name ... she said no ... and that was it.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks YeshuJah for sharing with us so flowetically :wink:

    :heart:
