If We Close Our Eyes

IF WE CLOSE OUR EYES

BY PURPLEJAMM

Nothing best represents the sentiments to purplejamm as an initiative than the song “IF WE CLOSE OUR EYES”. Purplejamm was conceived with lost children in mind…the poor, the destitute, the hungry, those living in the streets… fending for themselves without anything between their heads and the sky come rain or shine. These poor souls live outside the economic framework – with no skills to trade for wages and with no rights to won properties. They can only beg. Purplejamm aims to give them the gift of songs…something the can call their own. Something digital but a property nonetheless than can create resources for them – food, clothes, education and other basic needs.

As the song goes:

“If we close our eyes…
And fail to see what’s real…
Then our hearts will cease…
To love and care and feel…

If we close our eyes…
Then someday we’ll begin…
To wake up in a sad world…
Where laughter disappeared…

Look all around see…
About you…
Wealth and prosperity…
Amidst where children’s dreams get lost…”

The children represents humanities future. And everyone of us… not just the government, not just the civil society groups… each and everyone of us must ensure that these children are taken cared of.
