Not That Different Two or Too
Just last month I titled a blog Not That Different and as I began it I intended to share the lyrics at least of a wonderful Collin Raye song by that title. But as often is the case my mind and my words took me in a somewhat different direction but I did mention the song and said that as soon as I had made it mine that I would share it with you. Well, here is a link to my mockingbird version of Not That Different:
Not That Different
In the recent “Hostiles” brutal movie
There was at least one inspiring line
Uttered by a wise dying native chief
To a woman who lost her family to hostiles
But treated one who looked like them kind.
He said in a quiet moment to her,
“You are me and I am you.”
Of all the words ever uttered
None have ever been more true.
We are not that different
We really are One, the same,
When Papa says, “Beloved”
We all can answer to that name.
