When deciding what songs to pick for this essay, I was thinking about what I have seen and how it becomes a huge issue causing fights and war. While searching through the Internet, I came across the song One Day by Matisyahu when it hit me! Man in The Mirror by Michael Jackson is a perfect match together. Together both of these songs express how they want to change the world because there is war and racism all around us everyday. But many people don’t want to change for the better, so this becomes a big conflict. In these songs they demonstrate how one day things will be better and how they want to change the world. First, in the song One Day by Matisyahu, he speaks about how he relaxes under the stars at night, while thanking God for breathing…show more content…
As of today, many people aren’t lucky enough to make it past high school. I personally know multiple people who have died due to accidents, to natural causes and to violence/war. God has a plan for everyone. But some people believe otherwise. Matisyahu believes that he is alive for a reason and that is to make peace on earth. But as he starts to sing the next verse, “All my life I 've been waiting for/I 've been praying for/For the people to say/That we don 't wanna fight no more/There will be no more wars/And our children will play/One day/One day/One day” (Matisyahu). Listening to this song, you can conclude that he has a hope to end the violence because something does need to be done. It should not be pushed away anymore. As years go by, parents are afraid for their kids and for the next generations because they don’t know what is to come.

People’s violence today is just unexplainable. Out of all the people in the world, children? They weren’t taught what to do if an intruder…show more content…
. (Micheal Jackson). If you haven’t seen the music video for this song, you will want to make a change. It starts off by showing how African kids are thirsty and starving. They are weak; you can also see their bones, and they are lying on the cold, hard, dirt ground. It’s absolutely awful and people shouldn’t live like this ever! Then the video moves into racism and how Martin Luther King had a dream. Many grandparents, to this day, are still against black people. Elderly people believe blacks should use separate things still such as bathrooms. Also, many children look up to their parents and grow up to believe what they believe in, so it becomes a chain reaction through generations. I personally believe everyone is equal. As I was on Twitter, I saw this picture of skeleton bones and under it, it said, “Black, White, Gay, Straight, Religious, Atheist” (The Student Room). I believe this picture is extremely incredible. It shows that everyone is the same and just because you like girls, or guys, or even have a different skin color than someone, we are all humans. We all should be treated the same. Especially people in Africa, they should be treated like us. We have foundation stations, while they have one bottle of water to share. They shouldn’t be starving when we waste food at a buffet
