Man in the mirror

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
Source: Lyrics from Man in the Mirror by Michael Jackson

My husband was watching a Michael Jackson DVD today and the song ‘Man in the Mirror’ came on. I sat there watching and listening. The video was full of footage of familiar faces and events plus a lot of thought provoking images that could be anyone, anywhere.

“I have always loved this song,” I said to Lynsey.

“Me to,” he said.

As I sang along and thought about the words it struck me how some messages are timeless. The issues Michael talks about in this song are still with us. I believe his suggestion of beginning to solve these problems by looking at yourself is still relevant. It connects to my message in the post I wrote on the Burmese conflict.

Thanks to YouTube you too can have a Michael Jackson moment 🙂
