the spin throughout the years
When you have seen the things I’ve seen and traveled all over the world, you would not be honest to yourself and the world to be that way [self absorbed/hard hearted]. I just couldn’t see myself not being touched by the things I have seen, like that village in China, and the things I have seen in Africa and Russia and Germany and Israel. I remember this newborn baby fighting to live, newborn with all the things in the nose, in a hospital in Israel. How could your heart not go out to something like that? I said to everybody, the kids, everybody, “Come here kids. You have to see this,” because I think they understand the sensitivity of how children are important, helping others, reaching out to the world, to the underprivileged. Being materialistic and showing this sense of me-ism all the time is something I deplore.
