Ms. Céline Dion’s French song, which is featured in this post, was composed by Mr. Jean-Jacques Goldman. It is being interpreted here by TALENTED youth from Québec (Canada), namely members of “Les petits chanteurs de Laval“.
Here are some of the lyrics of this beautiful melody:
REFRAIN (in the original French)
“S’il suffisait qu’on s’aime, s’il suffisait d’aimer. Si l’on changeait les choses un peu, rien qu’en aimant donner. S’il suffisait qu’on s’aime, s’il suffisait d’aimer, je ferais de ce monde un rêve, une éternité“.
CHORUS (translated into English)
“If it was enough that we love each other, if it was enough to love. If we changed things a little bit, just by loving giving. If it was enough that we love each other, if it was enough to love, I would make this world a dream, an eternity”.
If she may, with all due respect along with a heavy heart, Bambi would like to offer Ms. Dion’s song on love to Isaac’s dad, Mr. Craig P. Oehlers. His tweeted words reported below, and the shared picture, touched her soul. As shown further below, Bambi had honoured his late son in several older posts, including some featuring Isaac’s grieving mom, Ms. Sarah Copland from the United Nations.
May justice be FINALLY served for Isaac and his family… and for ALL the other victims of the Beirut surrealistic port double blast. The 224 victims of this still unaccountable tragedy were of different ages (i.e., toddlers, youth, adults, seniors), nationalities, and from all walks of life. Bambi is thinking of them all, one by one, including but not limited to: the little Alexandra, the young Elias (from her parents’ parish), the beautiful young mother Diana (her parents’ neighbour, sister’s friend, friends’ cousin), the nurses/patients (of a nearby hospital), and an anonymous owner of a store Bambi searched for in that heavily damaged neighbourhood days ago, before leaving Beirut.
To conclude this brief musical post, it is Bambi’s hope that you will enjoy the song in question, even if you do not understand French.
