sunday inspirations...the great divide  

Posted by SjP in

Many of you may recall a boy group introduced to the pop-teen world about 10 years ago. Much like N-Sync, Backstreet Boys, and the like they were known for their dancing, all-American looks, and ability to be make young girls swoon. Today, Hanson is all grown up and using their fame and fortune to bring attention to the Take The Walk challenged designed to take action against the HIV/AIDS pandemic and poverty in Africa. I was inspired by their performance of their song The Great Divide yesterday on the CBS Morning Show.


I share with you today, the words and video of Hanson's The Great Divide. I hope that you too will be inspired and remember that we are not alone in this world and as such, must conquer the divide.

The Great Divide

The earth is shaking under siege
And every breath will meet its fate
Still we hunger for a moment of freedom
Even though the hour is late

I find hope and it gives me rest
I find hope in a beating chest
I find hope in what eyes don't see
I find hope in your hate for me

Have no fear when the waters rise
We can conquer this great divide
This great divide

When every eye is on the fortune
It can only breed contempt
They say blood is thicker than oceans
Still we box our brothers in

I find hope and it gives me rest
I find hope in a beating chest
I find hope in what eyes don't see
I find hope in your hate for me

Have no fear when the waters rise
We can conquer this great divide

And we're gone, and we're gone
And we're, holding on
And we're, holding on
And we're, holding on

I find hope and it gives me rest
I find hope in a beating chest
I find hope in what eyes don't see
I find hope in your hate for me

Have no fear, have no fear, have no fear,
Have no fear when the waters rise
We can conquer this great divide
This great divide
