The other day I posted a diary with images set to a song We're not gonna take it.  It was popular.  So, I am doing it again, this time with From a distance.

I hope you like it.

From a distance
The world looks blue and green


And the snow capped mountain is white


From a distance
The ocean meets the stream

Ocean meeting stream

And the eagle takes to flight


From a distance
There is harmony


And it echoes through the land
It's the voice of hope


It's the voice of peace


It's the voice of every man


From a distance
We all have enough


And no one is in need


And there are no guns,


No bombs


       and no disease,


No hungry mouths to feed


From a distance
We are instruments
Marching in a common band


Playing songs of hope
Playing songs of peace


They are the songs of every man


God is watching usGod 1
God 2God is watching us
God is watching usgod 3
From a distance

From a distance
You look like my friend


Even though we are at war


From a distance
I just cannot comprehend
What all this fighting is for


From a distance
There is harmony
And it echoes through the land
And it's the hope of hopes
It's the love of loves
It's the heart of every man

God is watching us
God is watching us
God is watching us
From a distance

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
