I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

POWER OF LOVE/LOVE POWER


Power of Love/Love Power is the title of a number-one R&B hit by Luther Vandross released on April 9, 1991 as the lead single from his 1991 album Power of Love. The hit song spent two weeks at number-one on the US R&B chart, and peaked at number four on the US pop chart, becoming his biggest pop solo hit[2].


The song is a medley of two songs titled "Power of Love" and "Love Power." "Love Power" had been a minor hit in 1968 for the one-hit wonder R&B group The Sandpebbles. The Sandpebbles version of "Love Power" had made it number twenty-two on the Hot 100, and number fourteen on the R&B singles chart[3].

Donna Summer recorded a version of the song for the 2005 album So Amazing: An All-Star Tribute to Luther Vandross.


This song is all about LIFTING up others and as you encounter individuals less fortunate than yourself, know that it is with the POWER OF LOVE that you give them strength to make it through. When we empower ourselves to act on the POWER OF LOVE, we accept that a single individual can make a difference in the lives of MANY! Though the sheer scope of suffering and injustice in the world can be both daunting and discouraging to those seeking to make a difference, we MUST even a minor philanthropic effort can be PROFOUNDLY meaningful. For our compassion form the root of the motivation that prompts us to step outside of ourselves in order to life others towards the light...THE LIGHT OF LOVE!
