One World, One Humanity, One Love...I wrote this song about two years ago, the sadness of witnessing refugees fleeing persecution ~ at the borders, sleeping in the the cold and mud, watching on my TV, in my safe and comfortable lounge room. Some people around Australia were so frightened by the "otherness" of these refugees, they forgot their common kindness and humanity, fearful that their comfortable lives in a democratic wealthy society were under threat. Once again we are witnessing the terrible impact on ordinary folk - through acts of terrorism committed by tyrants and their despotic regimes.

The quote in the song was made by the Persian poet Rumi, and many centuries ago references pathways to godliness and humanity.
