Them, I & Them. ETANA:....Nothing But Love
"i say we owe nobody nothing but love, just love, sweet love. Straight from the heart" Hakuna ambaye anaweza kubisha kuwa kama kila mmoja ataliona hili, kama kila mmoja atatambua hili na kama mmoja atafanya hivi, basi ulimwengu utakuwa mahala pema sana pa kuishi kuliko ilivyo sasa. Etana, msanii ambaye katika mahojiano yake na website Jamaicans.com alisema jina lake lina asili ya kiswahili likimaanisha "The Strong One" (japo katika search yangu nimeishia waliposema ni la asili ya Afrika kwa maana hiyohiyo na bado naendelea) ameanza kwa kueleza aaminivyo kuhusu maisha yetu kama kila binadamu ataona umuhimu na nguvu ya UPENDO na ambavyo ama namna apendavyo maisha yawe mtaani akisema "as i take a little walk down the street, i nod my head to every single one i meet. Everytime i smile and say a BIG HELLO, don't you know, it is the only way to go? Cause we owe nobody Nothing but Love". Etana anaendelea kuongelea watoto akisema "as i watch the little children smile and plays, i wonder if there is a better way, cause their future is affected by today, so let us build a better place, for them to stay and play"Ndicho tunachohitaji tunapouanza mwaka huu wa 2009. Kuonesha upendo kwa watu wote, kujali watoto na kizazi kijacho kwa ujumla maana hakuna tunalodaiwa kulitenda maishani mwetu kwa wenzetu zaidi ya UPENDO.
Unaweza kuangalia mahojiano na "clips" za nyimbo zake zilizomo kwenye albamu yake ya kwanza na pekee alioipa jina Strong One ambapo humo kazungumzia ziara yake ya kwanza Africa, aliyoyaona huko ambayo hayaoneshwi kwenye Tv za huku, utu wa waAfrica na zawadi za kiAfrika ambazo hakuwahi kufikiria na sasa anajua.

BLESSINGS **Them, I & Them ni kipengele kikujiacho kila Ijumaa kinachoelezea kazi za wasanii (Them) kulingana na maono yangu (I) kwa ajili na manufaa ya hadhira (Them)** Kwa nyimbo zaidi ndani ya kipengele hiki bofya hapa.
.Today we have bigger houses and smaller families; more convenience but less time. .We have more Degrees but less common sense; more knowledge but less judgment. .We have more experts but more problems; more medicine but less wellness. .We spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry too quickly, stay up too late, read too little, watch Tv too much and Pray too seldom. .We multiply our Possessions but reduce our values; we talk too much, love too little and lie too often. .We’ve learned how to make living, but not a life; we’ve added years to life not life to years. .We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways but narrower viewpoint. .We spend more, but have less; we buy more, enjoy less. .We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet our neighbor. .We’ve conquer outer space, but not inner space. .We split the atoms, but not our prejudice .We write more, learn less; plan more but accomplish less; we’ve learned to rush but not to wait; we have higher income but lower morals. .We build more computers to hold more info, to produce more copies but have less communications. .We’re long on quantity but short on Quality. .These are the time for Fast food and slow digestion; tall men and short characters. .More leisure but less fun; more kinds of food but less nutrition; two income but many divorces, fancier houses but broken homes.
Changamoto Yetu Blog is an avenue for finding solutions rather than just reporting. It is a blog for the person who chooses to think more about solutions and dares to think right. It is for readers who believe they are a part of the problem, just as they are a part of the solution; for those who can see things from another perspective and think twice about problems that our societies are facing. Changamotoyetu Blog is for people who believe that ‘THE WAY YOU SEE THE PROBLEM IS THE PROBLEM’. A Positive, Self Discovery, Awakening and Society-Oriented tool that helps us to reflect on ourselves and realize that we are all as much a part of every problem as we are a part of the solution. The blog has 31 labels / CATEGORIES that look deep into problems from a societal angle and help readers realize that we have to change ourselves before we can think of changing someone else.
what i love? define it please
Sijui wataka LOVE kwa mtazamo ama kwa nia gani? Yaweza kuwa na maana nyingi lakini pale inapofikia wakati wa kufikisha maana halisi basi ni lazima uambatanishe na maneno. Ndipo inapokuja lile suala la ku-define by reading the context na kama unaweza hilo utatambua ETANA alikuwa akimaanisha nini aliposema Love.
Mzee una changamoto weweeee???!
Upendo, I like that!
kaka Mubelwa kama dunia hii tuliyo nayo watu wangependana, tusinge shuhudia hivi vita vianvyorindima humu duniani,
Hebu angalia yanayotokea huko Israel, ambapo ndipo Ukristo unaosisitiza upendo miongoni mwa wanaadamu ulipoanzia, Iraq,Sudan,
Somalia na kwingineko, amani hakuna, watu hawapendani hawavumiliani.
Chuki zimetawala, watu wanajali fedha kuliko utu.
Kaka hii ni balaa, tunahitaji upendo utawale hii dunia ili tuepukane na haya majanga ya vita.
