Music video created by Loretta Macklam, Lowry Olafson, the Choralation's Children's Choir under the direction of Janice Brunson ... and many others: raising community awareness of the potential for creating a park on Gospel Rock, Gibsons, where otherwise there will be a large development.
words & music by Loretta Macklam & Lowry Olafson
Take a look around
at what’s going down,
at what we’re doing to this Earth;
paving all the wilderness
as if it has no worth.
What about our children,
how can we be so blind?
The choices that we make
create the world we leave behind.
When I walk this land, I feel alive;
the rush of the wind, the surge of the tide.
It’s a precious place, who can count the cost,
but once it’s gone it’s forever lost.
Build a neighborhood
where the trees once stood,
how long can this go on?
The city’s growing larger,
bigger houses greener lawns.
Everywhere you go
you can see the urban sprawl;
it might make some people rich,
but the cost is paid by all.
This world needs our protection,
put an end to this destruction,
make a change while we can.
It’s a precious place,
who can count the cost;
but once it’s gone
it’s forever lost.
