It's a Beautiful Day


See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out

Above are some of the lyrics from a U2 song called a Beautiful Day. Looking at the Lyrics it is a song that has a bit of irony in it and a touch of hope and it all seems so fitting. After all the world is in fact what we make it. We are given a world that has so many things to see, touch, taste, and experience. What we do with those experiences is what makes our world.

So will we make it a beautiful day(and world) or shall we simply let it pass by and not enjoy the gifts that we have been given today?

I think i'll go for a walk outside now
the summer sun's callin my name
(i hear ya now)
i just can't stay inside all day
i gotta get out get me some of those rays
everybody's smilin
sunshine day
everybody's laughin
sunshine day
everybody seems so happy today
it's a sunshine day
