If you or someone you love has ever questioned, “Why am I here?”, Recording Artist Alicia Keys wrote beautiful lyrics for a song she sings that I believe gives an answer to this question. The words in Alicia’s song could be an answer for all of us who have ever questioned, “Why are we here?”
The YouTube video below is a recording of The Today Show during which Alicia performs her song, “We Are Here”, which she wrote after someone asked her the profound question, “Why Are You Here?”
Suicide often occurs because people have lost hope or fail to see a purpose or reason for their lives. Alicia gives a simple reason for why we are here, and that reason alone can serve as a purpose and a hope for people’s lives.
Please listen to the words and music to this beautiful song, and leave a COMMENT with your answer to the question, “Why Are You Here?” Let’s get a dialogue started on this post.
