Will You Contribute a Verse?

Will You Contribute a Verse?

The Powerful Play Goes On.....

and Will You Contribute a Verse?

Many will look at this commercial and say, "Awww, that's just Apple trying to sell their products as the coolest way to make a difference in the world."

And they'd be right.

But I'd like to urge you to think about it in a different way.

Look at it as a call for each of us to do our part in the world.   Will you contribute a verse?

This world is a book of poetry - some of it really exquisitely beautiful, some of it unbelievably bad and painful.   But it's a book with countless stories, literally millions and billions of stories.

Will you contribute a verse?

Will you write a verse in the story that makes this world a better place?

Or will you contribute a verse that is mediocre and doesn't leave the world a better place?

What kind of verse will you contribute?

I hope you'll contribute a verse that makes life better for those who are struggling.......

Like the kids in Haiti - will you contribute a verse for them?

Will you contribute a verse?

Thanks for contributing to making the world a better place.

Amanda - Thanks! I'll make sure I watch that movie - I figured that it wasn't an original for Apple - but who knows.......

The correct line is "you WILL contribute a verse," not "you may contribute..." Kinda drives me nuts.
