Reach Out and Touch Somebody's Hand ...

In April 1970 Diana Ross released her d├ębut single Reach out and touch somebody's hand. Imagine? 1970! Anyway, the title of the photograph in this post is Reach Up and Hug Somebody  which I intended to be a kind of play on that title, not really thinking of the song lyrics at all. So, I just looked them up and I thought, wow, there's a blog post here!  And the lyrics are so powerful they can stand alone.
So, reach out and touch somebody's hand, make this world a better place. If you can.
With thanks and love to Diana Ross who brought so much joy into the world with her beautiful music.

Peace to all


Reach out and touch
Somebody's hand
Make this world a better place
If you can
Reach out and touch
Somebody's hand
Make this world a better place
If you can

(Just try)
Take a little time out of your busy day
To give encouragement
To someone who's lost the way
(Just try)
Or would I be talking to a stone
If I asked you
To share a problem that's not your own
We can change things if we start giving
Why don't you

Reach out and touch
Somebody's hand
Make this world a better place
If you can
Reach out and touch
Somebody's hand
Make this world a better place
If you can

(Just try)
If you see an old friend on the street
And he's down
Remember his shoes could fit your feet
(Just try)
Try a little kindness you'll see
It's something that comes very naturally
We can change things if we start giving

Why don't you
Reach out and touch
Why don't you (Why don't you)
Reach out and touch somebody's hand

Reach out and touch
Somebody's hand
Make this world a better place
If you can
Reach out and touch
Somebody's hand
Make this world a better place
If you can
