Remembering 9/11, 2001 - What More Can I Give

Today we would like to remember all victims of September 11, 2001 and send prayers to their families and loved ones. And all the victims that had to lose their lives as a reaction to this incident.

Let's hope and pray the world will constantly overcome religious and other differences and we begin to understand living in tolerance of our fellow humans around the world.

“What More Can I Give”
(“Todo Para Ti” in Spanish) is a song written by Michael Jackson and recorded by a supergroup of singers following the September 11 attacks in 2001. The inspiration for the song had initially come to Michael after a meeting with the President of South Africa Nelson Mandela in the late 1990s.

Michael rewrote “What More Can I Give” as reaction to the incidents of that day in 2001 and recorded that new version with fellow superstar artists shortly afterward. ”What More Can I Give” was scheduled for release as a charity single, in the hope that $50 million would be raised to aid the survivors and the families of victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks. Due to the severe problems with Sony Music at the time Michael's dream did not come true. The song was released digitally in 2003 and all proceeds from the sale of the song went to children’s charities.

Let's remember all the lost ones today and forever. Help spreading tolerance and love and ask yourself "What More Can I Give?"

Rest in peace Michael and Luther Vandross. We miss you very much!!!

Numerous incidents of harassment and hate crimes were reported against "Middle Eastern-looking" people in the days following 9-11. The incidents of hate continued. This has to stop!

Pakistan is still under water - and I am very sorry to say that the flood victims also are victims of 9-11, because the world (and WE are the world) hesitates to help.

Thank you, doublebeee. You wrote what I am feeling. Especially on days like this, when we remember all the victims of this unimagable act of terror we all have to water a sensitive plant, called L.O.V.E.

God bless to all victims and the entire families of terrorism, violance and war.
