We All Bleed The Same

Dave is much happier to give blood, than to have his photo taken. *Grin*

Jesus taught:
“Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.”

~ Matthew 5: 44

Friday, 8th December 2017

Alex Boyé said it best, in the song of the same name, “We All Bleed the Same!”

…and when you give the gift of donating blood, or when you receive the gift of a blood transfusion, there is no way to know if the blood is going to a friend… or foe, someone who lives in the same suburb, or is the same race, or colour and creed as you are. Likewise, when you receive the lifesaving gift of a blood transfusion, you don’t know who, or even where it came from. *Smile*

Recently, a friend who was undergoing a lifesaving operation in Durban, received blood from SANBS in Gauteng, as there was no local supply of his blood type.

Although, I’m not able to donate blood anymore, my family is, so I try and ensure that they do so regularly. SANBS had a blood drive at Dave’s company on Friday, 8th December 2017, where he diligently gave his “pint of blood” and received a Christmas gift as the first donor of the day. 🙂

Happy SANBS Personnel!

We All Bleed the Same!
by Alex Boyé

I’m so glad that we are different,
I would hate to be the same.
I just wanna to be peculiar.

How can I get this through?
Nobody can be like you.
Don’t compare yourself to no one,
Cos they can’t do what you’ve done.
To thine own self be true.

In this world full of confusion,
Public pain and disillusion.
Don’t let them dim your shine.
You go for yours, and I’ll go for mine
Still a beautiful world and we’ll be fine…

So let me tell you what my mamma said…
Just be yourself, everybody else is taken.
Don’t be afraid, all you need to do is come as you are,
Never be lonely, if you can reach somebody’s problems
Everybody’s life is precious so I’ll protect it,
So don’t let us fall.
We all bleed the same.

Don’t ever change the things you do,
You just keep on loving you.
I know you’re tired of abuse,
And you say it ain’t no use,
Don’t believe it, it ain’t true!
Cos it don’t matter what they say,
I’m gonna love you anyway.

We might not have it altogether, but together we have it all.
So if we stumble… we won’t fall.

Just be yourself, everybody else is taken.
Don’t be afraid, all you need to do is come as you are,
Never be lonely, if you can reach somebody’s problems
Everybody’s life is precious so I’ll protect it,
So don’t let us fall.
We all bleed the same.

We all bleed the same.
We all bleed the same.
We all bleed the same.
We all bleed the same.
We all bleed the same.

Everybody’s life is precious so I’ll protect it,
So don’t let us fall.
We all bleed the same.

I’m so glad that we are different,
I would hate to be the same.
I just wanna to be peculiar.
Lest the world would be estranged
What does that even mean
Does anybody know?
I just want to be the real me.
Instead of putting on a show.

Just be yourself, everybody else is taken.
Don’t be afraid, all you need to do is come as you are,
Never be lonely, if you can reach somebody’s problems.
Everybody’s life is precious so I’ll protect it,
So don’t let us fall.
We all bleed the same.

Love each other.
Love each other.
Love each other.
Stop the hate.

Love each other.
Love each other.
Love each other.
Stop the hate.

Love each other.
Love each other.
Love each other.
Stop the hate.

Love each other.
Love each other.
Love each other.

Just be yourself, everybody else is taken.
Don’t be afraid, all you need to do is come as you are,
Never be lonely, if you can reach somebody’s problems.
Everybody’s life is precious so I’ll protect it,
So don’t let us fall.
We all bleed the same.
Love each other.
We all bleed the same.
Love each other.
We all bleed the same.
Love each other.
We all bleed the same.

PS… I listened to this song over and over again, to write the lyrics because I believe they are really special words, and hope they are correct.

Thank-you Alex Boyé for your continuous inspiration, we love this song!
