Many artists have sang songs that encourage survival. The songs that encourage a fighting spirit when all seems down including in times when illness has taken root.
One such songs that immediately come to mind is Bob Marley’s survival which says in one of the stanzas, ‘So my brethren, my sisthren, Which way will we choose, We better hurry, oh hurry woe now, ‘Cause we got no time to lose.’
More recently Beyonce wife to Jay-Z, with her Destiny Child Band sang ‘I am a survivor’ song. Yes I am a survivor and I will not surrender. The forth stanza of the songs goes like; ‘Thought I couldn’t breathe without you, I’m inhaling, You thought I couldn’t see without you, Perfect vision, You thought I couldn’t last without you, But I’m lastin’, You thought that I would die without you, But I’m livin’, Thought that I would fail without you, But I’m on top, Thought it would be over by now, But it won’t stop, Thought that I would self destruct, But I’m still here, Even in my years to come, I’m still gon’ be here, I’m a survivor (What?), I’m not gon’ give up (What?), I’m not gon’ stop (What?) .’ And it ends with a prayer for sustainability. I particularly like the stanza that says, ‘After all of the darkness and sadness, Soon comes happiness, If I surround my self with positive things, I’ll gain prosperity.’
These songs should encourage us that within the difficult circumstances we find ourselves in, we can still amass strength to fight with the acknowledgement that we are survivors. More so if we also foremost acknowledge that there there exists an unseen power up there which looks after all humanity. This is what the world current situations reminds us of this power beyond man.

To sacrifice yourself can only come from thoughts of absolute lack. ……….You cannot summon for another person because you cannot think and feel for another. Your job is you.
