Where Is The Love? by Black Eyed Peas

What’s wrong with the world mama?
People living like aint got no mamas
I think the whole worlds addicted to the drama
Only attracted to the things that bring you trauma
Overseas yeah we tryin to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin
In the USA the big CIA the Bloodz and the Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And if you hatin you’re bound to get irate
Yeah madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how anger works and operates
You gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love y’all

People killing people dying
Children hurtin you hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach
Would you turn the other cheek?
Father Father Father help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me got me questioning
Where is the love?(where is the lovex3)(the love2x)

It just ain’t the same all ways have changed
New days are strange is the world the insane?
If love and peace so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don’t belong
Nations dropping bombs
Chemical gases filling lungs of little ones
With ongoing suffering
As the youth die young
So ask yourself is the loving really strong?
So I can ask myself really what is going wrong
With this world that we living in
People keep on giving in
Makin wrong decisions
Only visions of them livin and
Not respecting each other
Deny thy brother
The wars’ going on but the reasons’ undercover
The truth is kept secret
Swept under the rug
If you never know truth
Then you never know love
Where’s the love y’all?(I don’t know)
Where’s the truth y’all?(I don’t know)
Where’s the love y’all?

People killing people dying
Children hurtin you hear them crying
Can practice what you preach
Would you turn the other cheek?
Father father father help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me got me questioning
Where is the love?(where is the lovex3)(the lovex2)

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I’m getting older y’all people get colder
Most of us only care about money makin
Selfishness got us followin the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting their young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what the see in the cinema
Whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality
Instead of spreading love, we’re spreading anomosity
Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feeling under
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feeling down
It’s no wonder why sometimes I’m feeling under
I gotta keep my faith alive, until love is found

People killing people dying
Children hurtin you hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach
Would you turn the other cheek?
Father Father Father help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me got me questioning
Where is the love?(fade)

Is Love Greater Than money ?

Good morning everyone ,before I start my speech , I want to ask you a question ‘What is the most important thing in the world ? “ Our answer may be food ,fame , jewellery and so on ,because in this material world ,these things are very important to us ,but I am sure that many people will say that money is the most important thing in this world .Money is really very important .That’s why people work so hard to make money .We need money to buy all the things that we need in daily life .We need it to buy food and clothes .We need it to make us happy ,like buying play station and computers .
But is there something that is more important in this world ?for me ,the most important thing in this world is Love .In the Bible ,it said that the most important thing is Love .Love is care .Love is patient .Love is forgiveness .Love make us happy .What most children want is the love and care from their parents .For teenagers ,love from friends is very important too .Love can last forever ,but money cannot .If there is no love in this world ,we will never be happy .Love between friendship and love in family are important ,what will the world be like if there is no more love ?
Money can be good or bad .Money cannot buy love , but it is a good tool to help us present our love ,we can donate money to help people .In the Sichuan earthquake ,a lot of people donate money to help those people in need ,so it doesn’t mean that money have no relation to love .But money cause tragedy .There was a news about a woman who killed an old lady just for 900 dollars and a pair of gold earrings ,I feel really sorry about it .
If what people only care is money ,more and more bad things will happen ,many people die for it ,that is the power of money .that’s why love is most important .If there is more love in this world ,the world will be peace and happy and less tragedy will happen.
Lastly ,I want to share a poem:
Love is great

Love is neat

Can I be the Candidate

But love cannot be trade

Love is greater then money ,then everything .Why are you waiting ?Have you share your love to others today ?

P.s by the way ,good song!! i like fergie .

Good morning everyone!!!!! Before I start my speech, I want to ask you a question, do you agree that money represent everything include our life or study?

Love includes the love of family, friends or even lovers. Let me give you an example. The characters of some people are bad, they don’t have any friends, so they use the money to their classmates for exchanging the friendship, but this behavior is bad. Although they have friends to play in the leisure, the friendship is not the truth. The friendship between them is only a trade. Will you be happy for this kind of ‘friendship’? We can divide this word into two part.. They are “friend” and “ship” . This is a kind of love that is trading by ship between our friends.

Let me introduce other example. In the 8 magnitude earthquake in Sichuan which occurred in 12 May 2008, this accident led to about 70 thousands people died. Many people loss their families , friends. Could we pay for their families or friends back? Because of love, the Hong Kong people donate much money to help the people in Sichuan to build up their homes. If we don’t have love, we won’t do that , aren’t we?

In conclusion , Although money can fulfil your physical needs , but it is not represent that money is greater than love . Love is around us, the difference is our mindset. Love is the greatest power in the world . If we don’t have love , our life is full of darkness. Finally,I hope that you all can find out the truth of love.

This is the end of our speech.Thank you!

Is love greater than money?

Good morning teacher and fellow classmates. Do you think love is greater than money? Let me share my point of views here.
People of nowadays; always only think the “money” these two words in their brain. The word of “love” start to disappear in people’s brain. Whether you have thought that money can’t do everything, money can’t buy ones life after a person was died. Money can’t buy your youth when you grow old. Money can’t buy time when you had lost it. Sometimes, money makes people to lose one’s marbles and do silly things.

Let me take an example, it likes the magnitude quake of Sichuan. After many people know that, they feel very upset too. Therefore, many people contribute to help the Sichuan people. People have already contribute, contributed is not inevitable. Think about it, money can help them to build the buildings, but their soul can’t build with these money. It needs love! Not just the money.

Money, it only can fulfill our physical needs and the food we need, money is the root of evils: love, is not just can fulfill our emotional needs and bring you happiness: love is the root of joy.

Now, do you think that love is greater tan money? My answer is yes. How about you? Thank you!

Comment by Ting

→ Good morning everyone. Let me ask you some questions: If I give money and love for you to choose, which one will you get? Do you think love is greater than money? Will you earn more money but forgo love? I think it’s so difficult to answer these questions, isn’t it?

→ Today, my topic is: “Is love greater then money?” Yes, love actually greater than money. Money can’t buy happiness from love. Money can’t buy our friends and family. Money can’t exchange with love. Perhaps some people may think that money is greater then love. Let me give an example to explain to you.

→ In Sichuan earthquake, many people died, but there are still some survivors under the rubble. They all need soldiers to help them. Let’s think: If the soldiers do not have love, will they help to save these survivors? If only has money but no one saved them, then will this money still have its purpose?

→Last week, I read the news, and I found something make me feel very touched. There is a mother who used her body to cover her 4-month-baby under the rubble. The soldiers found the baby and the mobile, there is a message on it: “my little treasured one, if you can live, remember I love you!” Actually, this message is the last words of the baby’s mother on the phone before she died. Boys and girls, don’t you see how love is greater than money a lot?

→I think everybody should care more to everyone because nothing can’t buy your love, not even money. If everybody doesn’t care about each other, do you think love still exists?

→ Lastly, let me share a few words from the Bible: “And if I have power, and understand all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountain, but have not love, I am nothing.” Now, is love greater than money? Thank you!

Good morning everyone,

Firstly, before I start my speech, I want to ask everyone some questions: What is
your feeling of dating in H.T.Y.C.? Do you think there have some advantages and
disadvantages of dating at school?

Today, my topic is “The advantages and disadvantages of dating at secondary
school”. I want to share a poem: There had a couple; the girl is 14-year old. The boy didn’t like her anymore because he likes the other girl. When the girl who is 14-year old knew that, she was so upset. After that, she went home and jumped off from the building and died! At this moment, except you Ms Betty, everyone is the students in this secondary school! For me, I think dating is not acceptable when we just a secondary school student! Because when we were having dating in secondary school, we may not care about the study at school anymore. You may just thinking when you will go to the cinema, watch the new movies with your couple after the lessons; when will you go to play with your boyfriend/girlfriend! Perhaps, you will think that, I’m just playing a game, it‘s not so important! I’m just a 14 years old student, I’m steal young! It‘s none of anybody else’s business! However, have you thought that when
you are dating in secondary school, do you have enough qualifications to your life in
the future?

Besides, at school, we need friends, but I’m not talking dating. We can also have
fun even though we are a boy or a girl. I’m a good example, I ‘m not just have good friends with the boys, my best friend who are the a girl! Although there have a lot of
disadvantages of dating at secondary school, there have some advantages! What do you guys think? We need to do a lot of projects, a lot of quizzes, dictations etc. Sometimes, we need to do the homework until midnight! So, you want to have a good friend to talk to. We dating in secondary school, we can gain the experience of love. You can learn from the dating, what do think so?

At last, I want to share a poem which was written by me: Dating, Couple Dating, Love Dating? Hate Dating? Oh! It’s none of our business now! Isn’t it? That’s all for my speech, thank you!

Comment by Harry

Is love greater than money?

Good morning everyone. Before I start my speech, I have a situation for you. Suppose a man asks you to kill your wife or husband, and if you can do it, he will give ten million dollars to you. You won’t risk any punitive sanctions after you kill your wife or husband. Which choice you will choose? This is a situation between love and money. If you choose to refuse the man’s ‘’deal’’, that means in your mind love is greater than money. And today, the topic I going to share with you is ‘’is love greater than money?’’
Objectively and realistically, some people may say that money is important as we cannot live without money. But let’s think about this: When you are upset and feel hopeless, can money help you? Surely can’t. But love can help you. Love is the medicine of sadness since love can support you all the time. You can’t count on money when you are depressed. Money can only solve financial problem. I sure all of you rather have a person to take care and show consideration to you than money. People may think that ‘If I have money, I will be happy.’ But this just satisfying the trivial matter, but not our heart!
Love is unlimited while money has a certain value. Love is a pleasure that god gives us but money is just a tool. Money absolutely can’t be compared to love. A famous Roman Poet, Virgil, have a poem said ’’ Love conquers all.’’ It is really impressive. Love can conquer all the things in the world, include money. Love can win sadness, love can defeat enmity, and love can help people from black.
By the way, money can be a road to devil. Some people put money in the first position in their mind since their love to money is too excessive. They just care about money. If we say that money is a kind of devil, then we can say love is kind of angel. Angel or devil, which one will you choose?
In conclusion, I think love is greater than money. Money is unable to be compared to love. Love is a spiritual thing and it can’t get from anywhere in the world. Money can only bring your daily needs. My classmates, is money so important? We should be hunger for love. My speech has comes to the end. Thank you.

Comment by Marco fish~2D

Is love greater than money?

Good morning everyone! First, I want to ask you a question. If you had a lot of money, what would you do with it? Someone would buy Lamborghini. Someone would buy many properties. But when you had all these things, would you feel happy? I think the answer is negative. The most important thing in my life is love. Yes, you are right. My title is “Is money better than love?”

I think love is the most important thing. It is because when you have much money, but you don’t have any love, you will feel sad. The meaning of love is a feeling pf warm personal attachment or deep affection towards a parent, child or friend.. In real life, people used to say “no money no talk”. But I think if you have love, you would not mind whether you have much money or not. It is because your family or your friends will be around to give you support..

I have read a story called “Love or money”. It is about a family. The father is very rich. But he is killed by his son who wants to have all his money. This is a sad story. It tells us that some people prefer money to love.

Also someone would say “No money no honey”. I think this is ridiculous because you would not ask a boy or a girl, whom you want to get acquainted with, a question “How much money do you have?’ And if the answer is no, you would not say goodbye and go back home. So loving a person is a warm feeling towards the person concerned. You would not mind whether he or she is rich or not. If someone asks you the above question, I think you would feel very angry and want to hit the guy.

Finally I want to say that money to me is useful but not very important. I need money to buy things I want. So please don’t chase money blindly.

Hi, everyone! Today, I’m going to talk about ‘The dangers of online dating’. Many people meet strangers on the on-line chat rooms, but do you think there is certain danger in those rooms? I think so. If you just want to make more difference kinds of friends or enlarge the wide of your life-circle. It’s okay. But have you ever think the dangerous of making friends with strangers? First, he/she will tell you some lies, such as telling you a fake name. Then, they’ll ask for your phone number to do something bad to you, such as create disturbances to you through your phone number. Afterwards, they may ask for your photo to see if you’re pretty/handsome or not and ask you ‘where you live?’ Finally, they’ll try to date you, maybe had some bad attempt, such as swindle your property or your body, and the like.
Recently, there is a piece of news about a girl who called Li May. She came from china. She was very poor but she got a good result at school. Unluckily, she met some bad guy on on-line chat rooms, and then she became a bad girl. She quitted the school and started to work to make money for her family. However, she did a devious job and fell in love with a bad guy. Once Li May went to her boyfriend’s home, her boyfriend took drugs and became crazy. He took a knife and killed Li May. This definitely proves that is the dangers of on-line dating.
I also have some net-pals one year ago; some of them still have contact until now. I haven’t thought about how dangerous when I meet some strangers on the net. Until I met some of them, I realize how danger it is. Some of them ask me to get my MSN, then we talk in MSN, and they try to date me, whatever we live very close to each other, but I say no, because I know it is too danger if I do that, but they call me through my phone number, again and again, and harass me. I feel so disgusted. After that, I claim that online dating is very dangerous!

Comment by Arthur

Good morning teacher and classmate.Can you feel the love of your family, friends ,teachers? MOney and love ,which one you care the most? Yes, today I am going to talk about ‘ is love greater than money?’
Money is one tool that can make we happy.More money we have, more creatrue and comfoet we get.All of you may want to be a rich man, because money can bring you things that you want!

Everybody may think, if we do not have money ,it seems useless to have love. But love is about giving, you’ll never matter about what you give afterwards.Just like you parent, they always hard woring to make a profit.Why they need to do this ?Because they love us , they want to give the best to us. and Why our teachers need to comment on and correct our works and prepare the lessons till mid-night?Because they love us.They want to give more knowledge to us and make our exam result be good! Can money bring love to you?can you imagine that the world without love?can you imagine that what will happen at the end ?

Lee Ka Shing is the richest people amony chinese.He got many money and mant famous companies,but he’s life is not happy.He onced said he wanted to go to a place that no one knew him and lived as a common epople live.In this example,we can see ,no matter how much money you get,you may not be happy, if your life is without love!

Lastly, what i want to say is, love is really greater than money.I understand that money is not all,love is the biggest thing of this world. There is only one thing is neccessary to be happy,it’s not moneyor power or even health,it is love. This is a sentance come from a book call “the sound of music” Cherish love, show your love to others: ) thank you.

Good morning teacher and fellow schoolmates!Today I am going to talk a speech to you all. But before I start my speech, I want to ask you a question. “What is the improtant things in this world?” The multitude’s answer may be ‘food, clothes, jewellery’ etc., because in this 21 centry, this all things are important to us. But I am sure that most of the people would said that the money is more important than the other things. That’s why the people are so hard to work, because they want to earn more money. In this 21 centry, all the things should be use the money to buy,clothes, jewellery, computers, MP3, etc.. Although the money is really important, the love is more important than that, isn’t is? The song “Where is thw love?” also said that the love is more important!
Hong Kong compare to Iraq or Africa, we are all bliss than they! We don’t have the war, nuclear war, etc.. Some country has war, then the people’s parent may died. Then they have no more parent’s love and care.
Money can buy many things, but it can’t buy love, isn’t it? If the people have already died, can you buy him/her back? NO!
In fact, if this world have no love, we will never be happy!
Money can be good or bad. Such as we can donate money, then it is good things! If we use the money to do the things is not good, it is bad.
Love is greater then money ,greater than everying! What are you waiting for? Have you share your love to the other? Let’s go! Share the love to everyone!

Comment by Candy~

The song is talking about a lot of people need love and we need to spread the love over the world.Nowadays,many people just care about themselves.When they saw some poor people,they may just turn to the other cheek.Wars still going on,poor people still crying,people still making wrong decisions.This song is represent the truth of the world,people will not care about others,just care money.But still a lot of people want to change it and try to spread the love little by little.So, we must back them up and continue to help people.Spread this spirit to the others.When we saw some poor people or some calamities happened in the world,we should help them as soon as possible.Don’t think that it is not relate to us and just forget it.NO!It is totally wrong!!We are all living in the world,we are family!We are friends!When they have difficulties,we must help them and care them! If we still keep the wrong altitude, that’s too selfish.If we just care the things that relate to ourselves,you won’t have happiness because you don’t have love!Love is the most important thing in the world.If we don’t have love, the world will become dark.So we must care people and don’t be selfish.Help them and spread the spirit! Let all the people know, what is love!

Comment by Yvonne:)

I think the msg of this song is to remind people cherish the love between people.Don’t start the wars anymore. Show your love!

Comment by christy*V*

This song talks about the reality in the world. People keep on killing others and the world is full of terrorism, people just being selfish and there’s only money in their mind. This song tell us the reality and wanted listeners to think about how they behaved and did they spread out love.
People, especially Hong Kong people are too selfish and that’s why there’re so many people sitting on the streets begging for money. Many people need help and most of us just think about how to spend our money on entertaining ourselves and never decided to give a helping hand to the people in need.Of course, love is not just about money, love is a kind of behave, we care people around us to show we love them.
We should think more about others, because we’re living in the same planet and they need our love to start their new life again.

Comment by Grammy

Reflection after listen the song:

I think this song want to tell us what love in our life is. In our life, there is many difficult problems that we are facing today. Terrorism, discriminate, people killing people, Nations dropping bombs, chemical gases everywhere harm for our health, negative images that infecting young minds by the criteria and global warming are the problems that we are facing today. They are very horrible but it happened is made by ourselves. It is because we only care ourselves and don’t care others. But still we can solve these problems but it needs our heart and help. First, we can’t discriminate other person; other country people are not wrong or have what problem. Second, we should love our nature and avoid do something that are harmful to our nature such as produce many rubbish and waste energy because this affect our live. Last, we should love more other people and help them. Then the world will more beautiful and better.

Comment by Amy

First of all , the message of the song is about love. LOVE is an elusive concept. We have all experienced love and feel we know what it is; however, when asked what love is, people give a variety of answers. The real love in life is a unique treasure that wealth cannot buy and power cannot hold. Not only the romantic love, actually there are different kinds of love such as parental love, friendship love and love for everyone. love. So I say that romantic love does not last long.

Nowadays. In this world that we living; in people keep on giving. People are not receipt to each other and always angry and angry so that there are many wars in this world. It make a lot of people die.

What can we do? Don’t think we only are the little one can’t help anything for it. We just give the helping hands to the people. When you see some poor people, don’t turn the other cheek. I hope everyone can love and receipt to each other.

Comment by ♥kw0kj0ey `

Reflection after listen the song:

I think the writer this songs to vent his resentful to the people who only care about money and do not know what is love. He also mock the people who get no ideas to love and care themselves only. The writer want us to think more about love and care after we have listened to this song.
In fact, we are facing many problems nowadays, for example, people are becoming much more selfish now, the just care about money or how to get a better job and earn more money. It is hard to them to care and think others in other positive position. They may even think that the beggars are want to swindle their money so they will never do the charity works at all.
We can bear some responsibility to help the people who need help. I believe that we can affect the people who do not know love and send this care others massages to them!

Comment by B0W!E:)

The message of the song is about love.Nowday
people are not care about love and others.They just care about themslef.They just think which is good for thire but never think about love.
Now,we are all having a problem between people and people.We are all not care about love.Love is not enough between people and people.
We can increase love by doing something that are good for the others.We should care more others. We can show your love to the others.
We can change the world and make it more beatiful.
We must care love than moeny!!!

Comment by CatffanY

this song tell us to care about love , not only care aboutthe money.
i think we should not be selfish

Comment by kit@2c

This song wants to tell us that we should care other and give them love, but do not just care yourself.

I think the song is very good because of its message, music and the lyrics of the song.Also,some of the lyrics of the song are rhyming.

Comment by Alvin

I think the message of this song is to remind people to attach importance to love. Since the community was developed quickly. People love money and substance. People become selfish and they ignore the love between people. The environment was polluted by us. We polluted the air; water and et cetera. Air and water become dirty, but people still breathing and drinking the water. This makes them unhealthy. Besides, there are lots of wars around the countries. Also, there is racial discrimination around people. In addition, much wrong information always shown by the media and these informations infect people mind.
We should attach importance to love. Money and Substance can be trade but love cannot. Also, we should stop the wars and the racial discrimination.

Comment by Serena

After I have watched the music video, I know that what the message is bringing up from the video.
In the video it has talk about something about war about human. And I think that some people are really very jealous, greedy and selfish just earn their profit and don’t care for the world. People who needed help need our care and love. The children or some people who is affect by the war also have been mentioned.
I think that the main message that the music video want to bring up is should love everyone instead of just earn money and do not help people and destroy the earth. In conclusion, I think that love is grater than money and love is the most powerful thing in the world, and love is even stronger than the money. So let love the other, and try to help people who need and care the world.

Comment by Jason

It is about love. Nowadays, a lot of people are in danger , but many people just turn the other cheek and care about them. If we have problem and the others are not supporting us, what will you think?
In fact, we should take care of the other people, especially those who need helps. Can’t we do something more about the others? Let’s change our world to be a beautiful, lovely, peace living place.

Comment by KEN

This song’s message is about love. In the world, there are many different kinds of love: family love, valentine love, friend love God’s love and so on. LOVE is an elusive concept. LOVE has many dimensions. It can be romantic, exciting, obsessive, irrational…. LOVE can make us happy and healthy and it exists everywhere. This kind of love is unconditional, no rewards and it is the greatest love in the world.
In the real life, many people were prejudice by some people because of there is some defects on their body. According to Joey’s article, she said ‘People are not receipt to each other and always angry and angry’ I also agree with this sentence. Sometimes we say the thing that we never think about someone feeling.
You ask me how can we solve the problem, I’ll tell you just do our best, because we cannot control the other people’s mouth. If we control ourselves, on pass ten, ten pass hundred…Someday later the whole world will be peace.

Comment by Christie =]

In my mind,i still think that love is the most important thing in my life.It cannot be bought,cannot be sold,it is a priceness trasure.We must keep our love be forever,dont just care about money.If our world just money in everyone mind,our world will lost a relationship with others.How can we live in this cold city?
So we must be love the people who around me,no matter they are rich or poor,they need our help also make our life more meaningful!

Comment by kik0:D

Hi! I think this song is about there are a lot of people in this world is haven’t love and care from other. Nowadays, people are very selfish. They only care about themselves. They love money more than others. They don’t care about other and only do what they think is right. For their benefits, they will do all the things, even WAR!!
However, there are many people need love. There are some people have starvation and ill. They need our help. Can you see some poor people stay on the street and begging for money? Can you see there are some poor families haven’t food everyday? Why don’t we help them? We can pay a little bit and it can help a lot of people. There is a big accident happen in China. Many people killed or lost their family. They very need our help. Why don’t we care them? Let spread our love over this world!!

Comment by Raphael

Good morning everyone. I want to ask you some question, what do you think about the money and love? Do you think money is important than love? I think most of you may say money is important than love. If we don’t have money we cannot do anything.

In fact, money is really important in our life. If we don’t have the money, we cannot buy food, clothes, etc. but I think, love is important than money. Today, my speech is “Is love greater then money”. Although money can buy many things, one thing it cannot buy is love. Money can buy family, friends and happiness? If we have money not mean that we will happy. If we don’t money we will not be sad if we have love.

Last years, our school had a drama called “Christmas Carol”. The rich man in the drama had a lot of money. He had everything he wanted. But he didn’t have one thing that is “love”. He was sad, lonely with his Christmas.

If we don’t want to be lonely like the rich man, we should care the people around you. Lastly, I hope all of us can love each other. Love is important than money! Thank you!

Firstly, I think this song is quite meaningful. There is a message reflected from this song, that is – we all need love and love is full of our lives. Such a little thing – love can affect people a lot. As a result, love is very important in our lives.
However, the world changes a lot. It is a serious, important problem that is facing to us nowadays. The problem is – love is not looks like the past, now, there is a little bit love only. It seems that people do not give love to others. Therefore, the love is less than before now.
At this moment, what can we do? Although we are students only, we still can be the helpers. For example, if you meet somebody who needs help, will you give him/her a helping hand? What will you do? I think we need to help him/her.
I think it is fair in the world, because we give love to others, and maybe you get the love from others when they help you. I hope love is full of the world forever. Let us create this wonderful world together.

I think message of this song is to tell and remind people what is love!LOVE have a lot of different items.For example, the love of family, the friend of love etc.Nowadays, most of the people always go to office which just remember the use of money, how to be a very rich guy. However, it sees that everyone forgot the love of family, love of friends!
We should spend some extra time for meeting with families, friends etc. We can’t just work and work! We need love!

Comment by Harry

The message of this song is love is very important but nowadays people always forgot it. They want to spread this message out and tell people what now world is. The song talks about there are a lot of war in the world now. People always think money is important than love. We need to face the problem of are wars. People always argue with something and they break out a war. They didn’t think about love. They didn’t think about what war is. They just didn’t care about others people lives. Also people in nowadays just think about money. They want money than love. With the money, they do a lot of terrible things. Even killing their relatives because of money. I think what we can do to change this is we should think about love. Don’t be angry with little things. Always think about people feelings. Care others and forgive their fault. Think about if you lose the love, you will never get it back. Value the things around you. Then the world will be better.

Formal speech corrections:

Good morning, teachers and fellow schoolmates. Let me ask you few questions first. You need to make a decision between money and love, which one would you choose? If you only can keep a thing with you, what thing will you keep? What is the greatest thing on the earth? Most of people may say: “Of course is money! Money can buy everything.” “Money is the most important thing on earth.” “ If you have no money, you cannot live.” I can’t agree that money isn’t the important thing on earth but how about love? Is money really the greatest thing on earth?

I’m sure all of you know what topic I’m going to talk now. My topic is “Is love greater than money?” I think the answer should be “Yes.” Although money is powerful, love is more valuable. Money can’t buy love. When love has gone, you will never get it back. Have you ever heard a story called “ A Christmas Carol”? It’s a story about an old and bitter miser who underwent an unforgettable experience of redemption over the course of one night. He held anything other than money in contempt, including friendship and love. If the three ghosts didn’t appear and told him the truth, he wouldn’t know the true meaning of love and be lonely rest of his life.

What do you think after you hear this story? Love is very important, isn’t it? If we don’t have love in our life, our life will be empty. Not only the love from your partner, but also the love from your famailies, the love from your friends, the love from your teachers ,even the love from someone you have never met.

Sichuan earthquake made many people lose their home and their relatives.People around the world donate their money and also their love to help them. If you are one of the victims in Sichuan, will you feel happy when a lot of people care about you? The money we donate may help them but our love can support them. Support them to survive and to be brave. We can see the power of love is very large and boundless.

People always argue about money. Why can’t they put more love on it?So, dear teachers and schoolmates, from now on, care about the people around you. Your friends and your families. Don’t break the relationship between them because of money. You cannot get them back when you lose it. Value the things around you. Put more love on it. Money is not the only thing you have. Love can make our life better. Lastly, I would ask you the question once more time, “Is love greater than money?” Hope all of you can know the truth meaning of love and money. Thank you.

Comment by LISKA

I think the message of this song is that we should love each other and spread love around the world.
Nowadays, people don’t care about others, just care and love themselves. People don’t respect each other, even start wars and kill each other. This world has less and less love. Oppositely, more crime, more wars, more argue and more enmity. What’s going on with our world? Many poor people loss their home and families, they are the one who needs love.
We should not look down on to the poor; instead, we should show consideration on them and spread our love to them. This is the best way to spread our love. Also, many people feel upset and hopeless. We can also spread our love to them, can’t we? We can spread love to them by a short conversation just like’’ Keep going!’’ ‘’Support you!’’.
We should love each others. Don’t let our world getting dark! Spread your love!

Comment by Marco fish~2D

This song describes the reality among us — that is full of arguing and even wars around the world. Yet, these break the realationships between people and lead people losing their lives and leave them a terrfying memories. Moreover, we usually discriminate some poor and disables easily, and never concern and think about their situations and difficulties. The reasons why they happen are because we lack of love. Therefore, the message of this song is telling us that we should pay our love to others, and never only focus on themselves despite something that is not really realte or affect to our daily lives. Lastly, all we can do is care about the people around us, like families and friends. Because they all need is our love and care. Furthermore, we should not only care what other people will reward to us, but only know to pay our love forward.

Comment by da!sy

The message of this song is love. It is very important but people nowadays always forgot it-love. They want to spread this message out and tell people what now world is. It is no true love in this world. The song talks about there are a lot of war in the world now. People always think about money is more important than love. We need to face the problem of wars. People always argue with something or somebody and they break out a war or a fight. They will not think about love. They didn’t think about what war is. They just didn’t care about others people lives. Also people in nowadays just think about money. They want money than love. With the money, they do a lot of terrible things. Even killing their relatives because of money. I think what we can do to change this is we should think about love. Don’t be angry with little things. Always think about people feelings. Care others and forgive their fault. Think about if you lose the love, you will never have your friends, family , boy or girl friends and parents. Care the things around you. Love is very important to everyone!

Comment by DeNIs_ForEVeR

I think the message of this song is to attract our notice to think about where is the love. He tells us we should unfold love around us. As people are keeping on to bring out terrorism, killing people, race discrimination, nations dropping bombs, love seems to get far away from us gradually. In order to solve these problems and get love close to us, I think we should bear our responsibility because this is a collective work! Everyone should pay attention on these. We should care each others, your parents, neighbours, teachers, classmates. We can also donate money, food, drinks to the third country. We should not selfish to show our love, please don’t care your money but love. Don’t let selfishness get your direction wrong. All of must have self-examinations. Help ones that need help. Love ones that need cares. Let us extend our regard and hand to hand spread our love over the world.

Comment by CCK

This song is telling perple stop killing and war. Love is missing now in the world, we should find it and make the world be a love and peace world.

Comment by AdriAn

This song is about the human love. It tells us that nowadays, a lot people become very impolite. And the writer wants to know where can we find the love?
The problem that we should facing is in nowadays is that after working for a whole day, we always feel very tired and don’t want to care about our friends and our family members. We become very selfish. Then we also feel very angry and argue with our friends. We don not respect and esteem them. It also caused a lot of things that we don’t want to happen. Like: wars, lots of insult and make the people feel very sad.
Actually, love is a very easy thing to do. If we don’t insult the people we don’t like. We try to respect them and love them. Then our world will be very peaceful and full of love. There are no wars too, because we all love and care each people.

Comment by jEnNY cHeuNG

I think this is really a good song.It bring us an improtant massage and the massage is about LOVE.In the world, many poeple that money,foods or something else is more improtant then love.But I don’t think so, because when we are unhappy, we can’ t use money to “buy” happy but our friends will use love to make me feel happy again.
Nowadays ,many people do not know how to show to other people .
So ,after we listen to the song we can read the words. We should remind ourself to show the LOVE to your friends and family everyday.!!!

Comment by Kelly

the message of this song is about love.In this world now,many people think that money is greater than love!Some people want to have more money to trade out their own family or friend.In our life,
friendship and the love of family really is not the most important thing?Money is really so important to some of you?More money really can have a better living environment such as you can living in a big house,have a own car etc.However,who will living with you in this big house and who will sit next to you when you are driving your own car?The answer is nobody will!Maybe you can say you don’t need anybody living with you.I think this kinds of people will feel lonely after a few years or few month as you have no love!Love is very important, love can get the support of your family or friends.Love can get the comfort with you are unhappy.That so many advantage!Why some people just cares about money and trade out their family?

Comment by natalie

Is love greater than money? Of course yes! This song mentioned a very clear message: love is greater than anything, even money. Actually, there are many really bad things existing in the world. Everyday we are facing different problems between people and people. We hate some people in our deeply heart. We always do something bad to hurt other people. Discrimination, betrayal, lying, untruth… all we can find just next to us! The main reason of all this is because we are selfish. In addition, we do not have a mind of loving people. Because of the lack of love and a generous heart, we can do any cruel things those are terrible. I think if we all can think more about the feeling of the others, care more about our friends, fellows, family and even strangers, we will finally change our world into a warm, full-of-love, kind, happy place.

Comment by Michael

Do you think your friends, family, teachers love you? And do you think you love your friends, family, and teachers? Money and love, what will you choose? Do you think LOVE is important? If you ask me, I think I will say, yes. Absolutely, money is important. But have you even thought, if we only have money and this world does not have love, will we happy in our life?
This song, Where Is the Love is telling us many people do the terrorism and hurt another. Today, our world is going to be no love. The people in the whole world do not know how to love the others. The world is going to be more irate and hate with each other. Very soon, we can not find love in this world. Now, we have to learn how to love and to cherish other people to make the world full of love.

Reflection
After listen to this song “where is the love?” . I think nowadays the people are loving money or something is really can see than the other important things. Just like, love, friendship and someone who loving us! When I look at the topic of this song, I think the people who written this song is lonely or he or she is unhappy. But the truth is the love in our live, no just about one person.
The main message of this song is people are destroying our world. There is some pollution, bad things example: killing people. That makes us and the world to be worried and unhappy. We are facing the love is going to disappear. And what think will take the place of love? It’s money.
I think we should love more people and give care to more people too. Therefore, the love will stay in our life forever.

Comment by moon

Firstly, this song is about the humanity. And the
message of the song is questioning us do the world have LOVE anymore? If it have, then where are LOVE?
Secondly,I think the problems that we are facing today are: nowadays’ people do not have any sympathy. They only care about themselves, they just in the cause of their property and the life.
Human are very selfishness and cool, they do not want to show their love to anyone.
Therefore, we must more care about those people who want our care and LOVE. Hope the world will not have any wars in the future. Because we want to live in a full of LOVe’s world.

Comment by Alice

This song shows the dissatisfaction and indignation of whole world. They are assailing the society where is the love. The problems we are facing are everybody just caring about their advantage. They do something which are harmful for people.

Comment by KATRINA 2D(1) :]

Moreover, the message of the song is telling us that today’s world is not enough LOVE. It is because of human. They think that money is more important than Love. But I don’t think so. LOVE is very important too. Without LOVE, that also means God will leave us. Because God give us to have a chance to love people, however, people cannot do that.

Comment by Alice

The message of this song is that we should love each other and not just only caring about ourselves. It is really an important message for nowadays’s society.
The problems that we are facing today are wars between countries and the argument between lots of people. People are only caring for their money. The media are spreading some wrong information and bad images, and polluted children‘s pure mind. We really have a lot of serious problems.
I think we can do a lot to help the world. Firstly, we should be generous to others; we should help the people in need too. So we can let the world know that there are still people who are not just caring about themselves. Secondly, we can teach children about the right criteria that we should have. If we do the things that I have mentioned on the above, it already helps a lot to change the world. We should not be selfish and we should love each other.

Reflection.

This song is asking where is the love because there are too many bad things in the world such as was, drugs.. People will hurt other people because of their benefit. Are they really unkind and cruel? I think not really. Their original character is kind.
On the other hand, wars and bombs are really bad. Because we will cause people die. Wars are meaningless, it is just a game seeing countries attacking each other and killing people. I think it is silly.
Love, is a feeling that everyone gets. Some people will show their love but some people don’t. I think that we need to show our love because it is a great thing. But how? We can help some people who are weak, poor and lonely. We have power to help them so don’t be stingy!
Love is in everyone’s heart. It’s time to show where is your love!

English Oral

Topic: Is love greater than money?

Good morning, everyone. Before I share my topic, I want to share a poem to you
first. The poem is written by Brittany Hill which called
“Love, Family, Friend or Money”
‘Love is powerful.
Love is pure.
How can you not be sure?
Family is love.
Friendship is long.
Money is good but can’t buy everything
.It can’t show you the path,’
Today, I am going to share with you a topic call ‘Is Love Greater than Money?’
Many people in Hong Kong may want to as rich as Lee Ka Shing? But have they
over thought about what can they get after become a rich man? They may be
able to buy the things they want or do something they want to do before. But will
they really feel happy? They can’t share their happiness with their friends or
family, is just like a person without love. Will you still want to be a person like
that?
I think many people have read a book called “Christmas Carol” before. But
have you got anything from this book? Are you look like Scrooge is a person who
just love money? Scrooge was a lucky person. He can have a chance to change .
But in our life, how much chance can we have? If you let love gone away ,
you can’t catch them again. Have you noted that love is at your side already?
There are many different types of love in this world, like family
love, Friend love, couple love and so on. It still has much love I have not
mentioned. What loves have you got before? Everyone has love. Don’t classify
love as money.” Is Love greater than money?” This is a positive statement or
negative statement for you? Or it is still a question for you? But for me, I know
that love is greater than money. No matter everything changed but love will not
be changed. It will be at your side when you need it. Don’t let it gone away, catch
them forever. Please remember, money will not be with you forever, but love will.
This is the end of my sharing. Thank you.

Comment by Michelle

This song is really meaningful.The song has given us the message of “people in the world need love, and some of them need our love.”
Many of us lost our ‘love’.There are many people hurt by something or someone and they need our love. For an example, people who was hit by the earthquake in Sichun, they lost their home,their families and even their friends.They were not only need money for them to rebuild their home, They need ‘love’too. But what are we doing?
You may ask, what can we do, right?Although we can not really ‘send’ out love to them, at least don’t do any bad things through this time or kind of events, such as, raising money but not for helping Sichun people, just for yourself. If you can, you may send cards to concern them.
Please don’t store up your ‘love’ selfishly for helping in need people.

Comment by Janice

After I watched the vedio.I know that we should love each other.In the world people only talk
about which one is the richer than which one.I don’t like the people always talk about money.
I am only believe in love.My parents and friends love me so much.But,I can’t use money to buy
the love from them!Money is important.But love is the most important thing in our life.Without
love everyone live alone.No one will be happy at that time!So we should love each other.Don’t
put the money in the first position.Put love in your first position!

Comment by jerry.\_/.

Do you think love is important? If you ask me, my reply will be absolutely yes. Love is the most important thing in the world. Then, how about money? Money is just a little thing in my mind. This song “where is the love”, tells us do not be so concentrated on money. Money is not omnipotent. It doesn’t mean that you will get more happiness. Love is greater than money. Love is powerful and the feeling of being loved is fantastic and fabulous.

We are facing at the problems discrimination, betrayal and terrorism. There are many bad things existing in the world. People hurt by each others harmfully by being hated and discriminated. They have a never-recover trauma in their heart. It hurts people self-esteem. We can’t find love in this world anymore. Nevertheless, I learnt from this song. We should respect to the others, don’t laugh at them. We should cherish and care for them. Treasure what we are having now. If we can do these, we will have a pleased world filling of love.

Comment by ANGEL WONG

The msssage of this song is that people nowadays are ignoring the love between people. Love is important to us and of course it is greater then money. But people always have wars, killing. the song asks us to spread our love to the people around us and to make the world become peace. No more wars afterwards!We can do many thing to improve our world. We have to take control of our mind and meditate.Do not genrate hate any more.
Care more our families, friends and to be happy with them.A peace and love world is waiting for us to create.

Comment by geoffrey

After I listened this song. I learned something. I think the message of the song is that there are many wars in the world. People hurt or kill each other. Stronger countries fight against weak country. All these things gave kids negative images. The poors don’t have money, food and clothes. Childrens get hurt in the wars. They cry and cry but no one help them. People in this world do not love and care each other. So, this song is written to tell us to have love and peace. The things we can do is that to love the people around you. And one day, you will find that all people love each other and have a peace world.

Comment by Cathy-)

The reflection

The message of this poem is want to remind us the important of love. Nowadays, people may hurt people just because of money or other advantages. This song want to tell us how we do to other people, how we hurt them, how this world become and want them to change. We are facing many problems nowadays. The serious pollutions and the relationship that with other people are the main problem that we faced today. How can we solve it? It count on everyone. We need to help and trust each other. Don’t let money or other thing destroy the relationship with other. Love can changed everything. Love can also change the world. Can we use love to change the world? I believe that we can do it. From now on, we use heart to help other people and do the jobs. The world will be full of love if we do so. We can find the love in everywhere. Can we do that? The answer should be YES. Everyone should do it. No matter young or old, everyone can do and should do it. Just do it. Let take the action to change our world now!

Comment by Michelle

After i listen to this song. I feel sad. It is because this song is about people start to forget what is love , and start to chase after money at all cost. This is too horrible. This problem just like a disease. It spread out quickly. If you don’t know a person is affected by this disease. We need to ask one question only. “If I give you one million dollars, Please kill your friends.” If he say yes. This person is not a person. This song also tell us Don’t chase money blindly. Use more time to care about your family.
By the way, I think about one thing. This song is sung by a American singer. In America
people is aloud to take a gun. It very dangerous. So i suddenly know why this song is sung by the Americans. So I will agree Chinese Government don’t let us bring a gun. It is too terrible.

Comment by Ashley

I think the message of the song is to expect the mind of the song’s writer. The song’s writer thinks the love is disappearing in these years. In the sentence ”People killing people dying”, I know that there are many people killing many people. In the wars, there are many people were killed. Even nowadays, there are still some wars. In someplaces, if one people kill any people, they need to be killed. In Hong Kong, this never happen. I think kill a people is very serious, die is not a good solution to solve this problem.
We can do more thing that with love. Few days ago, there was a serious accident happened, it is earthqake. We give many money and love. Many people went to there to help the people who were hurt.
So, I think love is not disappeaer, but it is more and more.

Comment by yoyo

In this song, the message of this song is ‘LOVE’.’WARS’are ruthless, many people died in wars. People lost their families, friends, or even lovers. Without love, we will not give any sentiments on something which we do. Without love, we do not have family, lovers and friends. Our human relationship is worse. Do you want these things happen in your life?
Nevertheless, we can do something for love everyday. Before we start the action, we should have a caring heart. Do you remember people who let you feel unhappy previously? Just forget it! If you see them want you to help, then help them! Do not say that they let you down before, so you will not help them. This is the big problem, which appear in Hong Kong! People are selfish nowadays, aren’t they?
Lastly, I hope people can give love to everyone and have a caring world!

Comment by Angel

Good morning everyone. What do you think about love and money? Do you think love greater than money? If you have a chance, will you choose love or money? You might think love is not greater than money, but I don’t. Maybe love let you get money but you can’t use money to buy love. Money cannot control a relationship.
Love is really important.
By the end of one’s life, I think no one will say, “I wish I had spent more time to be a libertine “After you are born, your parents care for you and give you love. When you were young, your mother taught you to walk, to talk and to eat. When you grow up they helps us on our life and future. She inspires us with confidence. They give many special needs for us and that is the only one who can care for us like this. Would you be willing to kill your parents for twenty-five million dollars? If you can’t see her or him again, that’s mean you lost the best thing in the world because Money cannot pay for Love.
If “money can’t buy you love,” why do so many people want to get their closest relationships and abandon the money? The reason is that they are after something even greater than love: the need for self-respect. People want to get their self-respect by achieving financial success and fame is what gives them the feeling that their life has value. People usually neglect their love while they are concentrating on their work, but when they discover what they lost and be treasure it ,it is already too late. No one will know what will happen next, maybe your love will depart from you tomorrow, So please treasure your friend ,your parents and your dear ones.
Lastly, I want to share a poem to you all,
Love is great
Love is neat
Can I be the Candidate
But love can not be trade
No amount of money can outweigh love. Money cannot buy your love.
Thank you.

Comment by natalie

The message of the song is LOVE!!!
I think love is greater than money,but I don’t know why do the HongKong people always bid someone because of a little amount of money.

I also try to suspect the mind of HongKong people,because many news that appear in HongKong always says”someone bid their wife,son,daughter because of money etc…My reply is “Oh.my.god!!”
What are HongKong people doing right now,are they
become silly or crazy? Why are they see money greater than love? These are all the question,I want them to reply me…
In the other hand,if you ask them “Is money greater than love?”They will reply you “NO!!!”
Although they reply the answer of the question is “No”,isn’t mean that they won’t do ,is it?

Now a days, many people in HongKong are very selfish,always just think about themselves and don’t care anyone arrounding you…This is a bad
habit we should avoid it appear again…

I think this song was EXCELLENT!!!!
It can hear through this song and tell us about Love…Now a days,In HongKong, it is hard to find love I think.
(This is just my personal opinion)

Comment by Karen~hins

This song is to remind people to meditate (use new word, add mark! haha) what is love. In the movie, it posts a lot of people who were crying, hurt or dead. It also brings out the effect of wars and battles. Nowadays, people try to make more and more money, but they had oblivious of love, oblivious of the relationship of each other. take my own experience, my father is really crazy on working, he do his best to make more money, and he seldom come back in the evening and have a dinner or even a talk with me. Maybe he thinks that more matter is more happiness and better to me, but I really don’t think so. On some TV program, there are some quarrels between colleagues, they want to get a higher but they had broken their relationship.
I think people should mind the feeling of other and try to work happily. Workers should mind of their family and try to go back home as soon as possible.

Comment by alex

There is a big message behind this song, it just likes a poem. For this song, it reminds people to care more about others when doing things around us. The pollutions that are produced by people are very serious now. We are facing a danger earth, it is just because of people who do not past love to the others, or they may not have love in their mind. The decisions they make everyday are wrong and it is not good for the others, the smiles on children’s faces were disappeared. What we now facing is that there is less and less love in our lives. We can help our earth and our nations by pasting love to the others, if we can help one people everyday, the people you helped may be touched by you and they will help the other. It is quite a small thing to do everyday but it can help many people.

Comment by Mon

The message of the song is love. It told me that where is the love.
Nowadays, many problems are facing to us. There are many natural disasters and wars in the world. People may get hurt and lost their family on it. They were pitiful and unlucky.
What should we do to help them? Raise the money to the poor?
Just do these things? Not enough!! Their interiors are weak. We need to pay for our heart. Love is greater than money. Money cannot proof anything. They need our support to brace up. Although money is useful, love is an important energy.
In the earth, many people are waiting for us. Let’s care and give out our heart.
Where is the love? Everywhere!

Comment by Wing=]

In modern world, we are enough matters. A lot of people care us in school and family, such as our friends and parents. On the other hand, there are still many people can not take the love from others in the world. Although at the 21 century, people become civilized, we forget the most important thing. That is LOVE. Nowadays, people only care about money and treasures, so they become selfish.
We should know that all the people in the world are the same, we should not look down upon somebody. Also, a lot of people lost their parents in different happened. That is a big pressure and they feel that the weight of the world on their shoulder. Some children cry all the time because they feel a big pressure and they cannot sustained. They are dying and have a difficult lives in their lives. Would we turn the other cheek? In the Holy Bible, it said that “in God’s eyes, we are all the same”. We are all the friends in the world, we need to care and love all the lives in the world. Just said is not enough, we should action at this moment.WE ALL WILL LOVE EACH OTHER AND WE WILL BECOME HAPPY.

Comment by Roger Ho

This song is to remind people to remember love.

Nowadays, many people do not care love, they think love not so important. Thay always destory others love. They are selfish, do not care other’s feeling.People are helpless. Thay are affected by the heartless war. Accuturely, the wars are not needed. It is just a scremble on the money and fuels. Like the war start by America, it seems to be a war for truths and rightful. But I think people’s power can make up their mind to stop battles. We see their are lots of people asking for peace all over the world. I have to join them and spread the idea of peace to all people. Then the power of people will be much more greater than the one who support wars.No wars will be produce and people will have love, a peace world will be given.

Comment by Sherman

The message of this song is tell us don’t forget the love, we must love each other. Love is important to our live. Love is patient, love is kind. Nowadays, people eyes are only covered by money. Many people think that money is the greatest in the world. They always destroy the world by wars, argue and so on. They don’t care the love. Love this word isn’t appears in their mind. They don’t care other people feeling, only take care themselves. Love is begun disappeared. We must find love between people. We must take care their feeling. Don’t argue because love is not proud, rude, self-seeking, not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. When we meditate, we must know Love is the greatest. At school, we can teach other people to do
homework, revision and so on. At home, we can help parent to do housework. This small things can help our world to become healthy.

The reflection
I think the message of this song is remind human that is love and list out the problem ,we don have love…There are many problem due people that without love,for example,murdering,wars,dropping bombs ,chemical gases spreading,affect young people,not respecting others e.t.c.
We should respect everyone and let each other free and have equal life.Governments can make big decision ,they just past some project,than many people can get help.I hope the rich man do not be selfish and help other live better.We must have love.

Comment by tebby

The major message of this song is love.Nowadays, many people don’t care about love.This song wants to remind us love.In the world many children don’t have food, they are waiting for our love to save them.In many countries, the children need to be a soldier,they all need oue love.There is a sentence in the song”where’s the love y’all?” The answer is everywhere!Although love is all around us, can evryone find its existence?
In fact, we only need to do a small action, we can find the love. Such as helping blind people to cross the road, donating money,etc.
I love this song very much!It can reflect the people nowadays,it is very meaningful.I think this song can remind the people to eat dinner with their families, talk with their friends,etc.The relationship between people become closer.I hope that everyone can find the turth of love eventrally.

Comment by Ella

In nowaday world, our living cadence is very fast .Somestimes we may forget or ignore somethings that sre important in our life.And I think that the song wanna to tell us ‘ We should care and love more our world, our neighbourhood’

The problems that we facing today are very seriously.Many rich people look upon to the poor, they didn’t give their helping hand to them.And I think the seriosest problem is we starting to no more care and no more love to the poor people ,poor things.Also , there are still some people who are very kind and helpful.But I think most of the people have this kind of problem.

I think now that we can do is to love more and care more you neighbourhood and things start from you now.So that . our living environment can get better than the past.

Comment by Anna

The message of this song is love is very important but people always forget it. Nowadays, there are lots of fancy things around us and they really attracted us. Since that, we have nearly forget what is love. In the 21st century, people are more civiled and they want to reach the top, most of them only cares about money and power. They forgot the most important thing, and that is love. To reach the top, people become selfish and they only cares about their ownself but not the others. Slowly, they become more cold-hearted. Why can we called living things, human beings?? It is just because we are alive, we have feelings, we are not like the objects. We can help each other, care them and value them. That’s why we are called living things!! The people in this world has being cruel, we need to change. We need to start care about the others, love them. If we don’t improve, we still keep on being cold-hearted, how can we called ourself living things?? Then, we don’t have any difference with the objects!! God create the world with love, so we do need to love and care the others.

Good morning Everyone.
First, I want to ask all of you a question, if there is an earthquake happening in Hong Kong, as well as there are several billions of money in front of you, how will you do at this moment? The topic I want to share with you today is “Is love greater than money?”
In this situation, i will safe my parents immediately, even though I can’t get the money. Let think about you get the money but your parents have already left you alone, will you be happy?I will still choose my parents. It is because my parents are disinterested on me. When I am facing difficulties, my parents will accompany with me. When I’m ill, my parents are worried and take of me. In usual, I often talk with them. I feel upset as I get the money if my parents are absent.
Nowadays, the minds of the most of Hong Kong people is to earn money, they do not pay attention to anything around them. For example, my neighbour is a merchant. His businesses are great and he was very busy. So he sent her mother to home for the aged. Suddenly he received a call from a nurse, she told him that her mother was sent the a hospital. However, he was negotiating a great trade, so he hasn’t heed to what the nurse talking about. Deep in the night, he memorised that the nurse has phoned him. He went to the hospital immediately and the doctor told him that his mom has remain half month to exsist. He told the doctor that he could pay all of his money if the doctor could saved his mother. Sadly, the disease that his mom infected was cancer. A disease that couldn’t helped by spending any money or medical substances. At last, he really realised that money was not omnipotent, he won’t be happy when he can’t share the money with his love.
Finally, I want to remind all of you don’t just learn how to earn more money, show more consideration for your parents, friends or lovers, don’t forget the love they have gave you.
It is because…LOVE IS GREATER THAN MONEY!

The message of this song is love.Love is important to our life.We can’t lose it.If we lose it,our life will become mo color, not wonderful!
Nowadays,the problems we are facing are nations dropping bombs,chemical gases filling lungs of little ones.ongoing suffering and so on.
Now,we can do is give more love to each other.We can be green.Less chemical gases released.Hope stop dropping bombs.We can express our opinion and feeling.When the world is filling with love,and it will become colorful.We are all healthy,no war,all are happy,no one feeling upset.

Comment by Jenny: )

After I listen to this song, it told me that love is the most important thing in the world. There are no more thing that is greater than love in the world. However, I think that nowadays in the world, many people do not care about their love.
They think love is not important and they thing money is the most important thing in the world. Yes, I agree that money is important in our live, because we need to buy things by money. But I still think love is the most important in our world. Here, I have thought a real example happened in Hong Kong. The Kwok’s brothers of San Hung Kei Property agrue seriously because of money and the power in the company. I think that their relationship will getting worse and worse if they don’t stop agruing.I think they can’t be happy without loving each other although they are very rich. So I think the towns people nowadays can care of their money and properties, but they also need to care about their love such as their family,friends and etc.because I think that if there is no love in the world, although we have a lot of money, we also can’t enjoy our life because we will feel alone and upset. However,if we are poor but our love are rich, we can still also enjoy our life!

Reflection:
Nowadays there are some problems surrounded
us .People pollute the environment unstoply.
Our dear father created a beautiful, interesting plant for human.But human doesn’t protect it, just keep polluting it.Nations dropping bombs,people dying,kill living things.This song tell us that human has to be together , show their love,save the earth together.Also, this song brought out a massage,people ignore their children’s feeling nowadays,they just work hard then forgot their children.
As a member of the people who is living in the earth,this is a collective responsibility for us to keep the earth peace and protect the environment.We are facing a lot of problems, it is difficult to keep good relationship between nations in the earth.Loving is disappearing slowly in the earth so that we have to spread the love.In the song , they are asking for guidance, and people have no idea to spread their love!For example,there’s an earthquake happened in SiChuan,donating money to help the victims is a good example of spreading our love.

Comment by Leo

1. What is the message of the song?
It said that we should care about love. Pay more love to the people who around us. Many people now do not be care to thier family. The relationship between then is so remote.

2. What problems are we facing today?
Many people now only see the money in their eyes. They think that moeny is more important than love. And they only to think about how to earn more and more money. And forget the love, care and etc. between each other.

3. What can we do?
Take more time to stay with our family. For example, we can go hiking, swimming, or have a BBQ on Sundays. Talk more about you to our faimly. Then they can understand your thought easily. An example is what is your friends look like, how them good, why they and you would be friends.

Comment by Eleanor

This song tells us we should care about love. Sometimes we know that someone in the world need our love. But we just go away. It seems that love is disappeared already. People can’t see love in their eyes anymore. In fact, we can do lots of things to improve our environment.Whwn we listen to our friends. This is one of love already. At weekends we may have dinner with our family ang chat with them. This is also one of lone.As a citizens, we can spread our love to the others too. We should throw the rubbish into the russish bin. We should keep clean and tidy.We should try our best to do the things with love. love is valuable than one thousand billion. Everyone need love. But if we want yo have love, we should spread our love to tht others first. Everyone please treasue the love we have now.

Comment by Erica

Love is greater than money because you can’t buy love with any amount of money in the world. You may be able to find someone to marry you, be your companion, be your best friend, because you have a lot of money. This song passed a strong message to us – love is an emotion that can’t be bought. Think about it, if went up to a stranger on the street and said ‘love me’. Would they be able to? No! It’s because they don’t know me. They don’t have feelings for me. They’d need to get to know me first and maybe even after that, they wouldn’t love me. And what if I went up to that same stranger and said, ‘I’ll give you a million dollars if you love me’. They might take my offer but they still wouldn’t love me. They too would have to get to know me and have feelings for and even after they got to know me, they still may not love me even though I gave them a million dollars.
If I fall in love with someone, that love could last forever even if the person went away. I could still feel love for them. But if I had a million dollars and lost it all, the money would be gone. Nothing would be left. So love is greater than money. It lasts longer. It is always there. Many people that have lots of money don’t have love in their lives and don’t know what true love is. But people that have love and know love, they can be rich or poor. It doesn’t matter. Love is enjoyed by many more people than money is.
Many people do not know love is surrounding them. This is one of the problems we are facing today. That makes me think of the recent tragedy – the quake’s in Sichuan. I remember one of the scenes on TV. The Lee’s couple found their only child at the school site. They picked up his body and carried him from the rubble. They took him out of the ground and laid him on the towel after they cleaned his body, tenderly. And then they went back to the site and tried to find alive bodies. This is such a tragic scene. And I wanted to cry when I heard an eulogy from a father, he said this, ‘Today we buried his body, but not his spirit. We buried his hands, but not his good works. We buried his heart, but not his love’. It told us that we could not bury someone’s love, but money.

So what can we do? I think we should enjoy spending every minute with our families and understand the importance of friendship and selflessness. Because this is the way we called love. Money is material. Love is emotional. You can’t buy an emotion with a material thing. So again, love is greater than money. Love is priceless. Money has limits.

I think the big massage is LOVE.
After listen to this song, I think this song is telling us about that there are full of wars and arguing in the world. Nowadays, people don’t care love, from the lyric “People killing people dying, Children hurt and you hear them crying”, but no one it going to solve these kinds of problems. We will all out friends, family and residents in every country. We don’t want more places for each country, we don’t want any wars and we just want a happy and simple life, that’s enough for us. We should use love to reduce wars, arguing and condone others, no making up any more things that we don’t need. People are not beasts, we have LOVE, we can condone others and I hope will no more arguing in our daily lives. From now on, we don’t want full of wars and arguing in the world, we want full of LOVE in the world!!!!!

Comment by Melody

The message of the song is about love. Nowaday, many people do not care their family. They always think that the money is important than love but they do not know the love in the behind.
In this song, the front like a poem. It says love is bigger than money. It is right. Love you can not earn and you had to care and you will have love.
I had a book call love or money. It is like the song-many people only want the money and let them die to have. Is it correct ?
Lastly, we can have many solution for this, we can take care of our brother or sister. We help our parents to do the housework. There are many solutions in this. You want to find love and you must find fo yourselves. Then you will know love is bigger than the money

Comment by Andrew

I think this song want to tell us what love in our life is. In our life, there is many difficult problems that we are facing today. Terrorism, discriminate, people killing people, Nations dropping bombs, chemical gases everywhere harm for our health, negative images that infecting young minds by the criteria and global warming are the problems that we are facing today. They are very horrible but it happened is made by ourselves. It is because we only care ourselves and don’t care others. But still we can solve these problems but it needs our heart and help. First, we can’t discriminate other person;

Comment by keith

some poor people,they may just turn to the other cheek.Wars still going on,poor people still crying,people still making wrong decisions.This song is represent the truth of the world,people will not care about others,just care money.But still a lot of people want to change it and try to spread the love little by little.So, we must back them up and continue to help people.Spread this spirit to the others.When we saw some poor people or some calamities happened in the world,we should help them as soon as possible.Don’t think that it is not relate to us and just forget it.NO!It is totally wrong!!We are all living in the world,we are family!We are friends!When they have difficulties,we must help them and care them! If we still keep the wrong altitude, that’s too selfish.

Comment by Nata

This song talks about the reality in the world. People keep on killing others and the world is full of terrorism, people just being selfish and there’s only money in their mind. This song tell us the reality and wanted listeners to think about how they behaved and did they spread out love.
People, especially Hong Kong people are too selfish and that’s why there’re so many people sitting on the streets begging for money. Many people need help and most of us just think about how to spend our money on entertaining ourselves and never decided to give a helping hand to the people in need.Of course, love is not just about money, love is a kind of behave, we care people around us to show we love them.
We should think more about others, because we’re living in the same planet and they need our love to start their new life again.

Comment by christy

The message of this song is love is very important but nowadays people always forgot it. They want to spread this message out and tell people what now world is. The song talks about there are a lot of war in the world now. People always think money is important than love. We need to face the problem of are wars. People always argue with something and they break out a war. They didn’t think about love. They didn’t think about what war is. They just didn’t care about others people lives. Also people in nowadays just think about money. They want money than love. With the money, they do a lot of terrible things.

Comment by adrian

This song is about the lack of love in our world. People just care about the money and became selfish.In other words, it’s about humanity. People are now facing the problem of wars, diseases etc. Many people died just because of the quarrels between states. I think we can find more love when we care more things around us, be considerate and try to stand on others place to think more about them. Maybe we should think more critically before we action.

Comment by Connie

this song is about the people living in the city ,how they think and behave ,. they are very cold blood and only care about what they what . this make the relationship between people become harder and harder .now adays people forget all about the love and care between each other .what they only care about is money and themself .the children have not feel the love from their parents and had been affected by them.and also become this kind of people .and no longer trust the other ,their not many love between.

Comment by sum

The messenge of this song is taling about people.Many people’s heart is cold so that causes a lots of hurting,peopledying…Just like the wars.The songs said that”as I’m getting older y’all people get colder” and always repeat the part:People killing people dying
Children hurtin you hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach
Would you turn the other cheek?
Father Father Father help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me got me questioning
Where is the love?(fade)

So I think people should get a warm and pure heart and always like the help a hand.Love may always here just because we haven’t realise.

Comment by secret

Where is ‘love’? Really, the lack of love and care is very serious and horrible in our world. Because of love, there is war. It seems that people put ‘money’ at the top of their lives instead of ‘love’. However there’s a quite interesting difference between ‘love’ and ‘money’. ‘Money’ is a kind of matter for people to exchange goods, but ‘love’ is a feeling and emotion, to exchange peace and other things that money cannot buy. So, which is better, ‘money’ or ‘love’?

Comment by Karen

Today, I am going to share with you a topic call ‘Is Love Greater than Money?’
Many people in Hong Kong may want to as rich as Lee Ka Shing? But have they
think love is the most important thing. It is because when you have much money, but you don’t have any love, you will feel sad. The meaning of love is a feeling pf warm personal attachment or deep affection towards a parent, child or friend.. In real life, people used to say “no money no talk”. But I think if you have love, you would not mind whether you have much money or not. It is because your family or your friends will be around to give you support..
Money, it only can fulfill our physical needs and the food we need, money is the root of evils: love, is not just can fulfill our emotional needs and bring you happiness: love is the root of joy.

Comment by Viyoko

Good morning everyone! First, I want to ask you a question. If you had a lot of money, what would you do with it? Someone would buy Lamborghini. Someone would buy many properties.
The message of this song is love is very important but nowadays people always forgot it. They want to spread this message out and tell people what now world is.
It is always there. Many people that have lots of money don’t have love in their lives and don’t know what true love is. But people that have love and know love, they can be rich or poor. It doesn’t matter. Love is enjoyed by many more people than money is.

Comment by Marco

Firstly , the message of the song is about love. LOVE is an elusive concept. We have all experienced love and feel we know what it is; however, when asked what love is, people give a variety of answers. The real love in life is a unique treasure that wealth cannot buy and power cannot hold. Not only the romantic love, actually there are different kinds of love such as parental love, friendship love and love for everyone. love. So I say that romantic love does not last long.

Nowadays. In this world that we living; in people keep on giving. People are not receipt to each other and always angry and angry so that there are many wars in this world. It make a lot of people die.

What can we do? Don’t think we only are the little one can’t help anything for it. We just give the helping hands to the people. When you see some poor people, don’t turn the other cheek. I hope everyone can love and receipt to each other.

Comment by YU

I think this song is quite meaningful. It is talk about all of us needs love and love is around us any time.
Now, lots of people forget the love around us. For example, our family, our friends, ect. These are all love around us everyday. Also, the song mention that is something wrongs with us, so that we will forget love. So, what that is?
I think we should think about this question-what wrong with us? Why we will forget the love easily? Where can we find the love again? I think love is around us anytime and everywhere, but the problem is can we find it or not. Also, I think we should do something for getting our love again. Such as, get closer to our family and friends. I think it will be one of the methods of getting love again.
Let’s find the love around us together!

Comment by Christy Kong

The message of this song is ‘LOVE’.
In the lyrics,it tells about all the silly thing that people are doing now.It is satirizing people that the love between each other has been losing.

“As I’m getting older y’all people get colder
Most of us only care about money makin
Selfishness got us followin the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media”I am in sympathy with these few lyrics because people are factually being more selfish nowadays.

Love is always around you.Let’s go and find your love!

Comment by coco

The message of this song is to remind people to attach importance to love. Since the community was developed quickly. People love money and substance. People become selfish and they ignore the love between people. The environment was polluted by us. We polluted the air; water and et cetera. Air and water become dirty, but people still breathing and drinking the water. This makes them unhealthy. Besides, there are lots of wars around the countries. Also, there is racial discrimination around people. In addition, much wrong information always shown by the media and these informations infect people mind.
We should attach importance to love.

Comment by Jenifa

Good morning eveyone!I would like to ask all of you a question.Do you think moneny is more important than love?Some song titles are’Forever love’,’Love is beautiful’.’Endless love’,’So much in love’.But I heard from a lot of people saying”No money no honey’,’No money no talk’.But I don’t think money is so inportant than love.Try to think.If you are very ruch.But there are no one loves you,do you think that you will be happy like that?No!Of course not!In the past,people were poor,but they loved each other,so they were very happy.Nowaday,people become rich.Money is the most important in their life.Have you read a book called’Christmas Carol’?The main character in this book only knew how to earn more money.He was a cold-hearted person and selfish.At Christmas Eve,a death partr told him”Tonight there will be three elfs visiting you’The first one who visited the man was a past elf.The past elf brought him to the past,he lost his lover because he only loved money at that time.The second elf brought him yo the present.He saw a lot very happy people because they loved each other.The third elf brought him to the future.He was dead alone in the future.Finally he thought love was the most important thing!In fact,lack of money is not the worse,but lack of love is the worse!Unfortunately,our world is too realistic.People still think’Money can buy love!’But,I still believe in love.I think if my life without love.It is very horrible!.At the end,let me introduce a famous sentence quote by Shakespeare’Love comforteth.Like summer after rain”This the end of my speech.Thank you!
