What do we need to help our current state of being?
With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.
We are back out on the street, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.
We visited the new Celebration Park on Hilton Head Island and posed the following: “There was a popular song released in 1965 titled ‘What the World Needs Now is Love.’ What does that mean for 2021, how does it apply, or what does it look like?”
Gracen Snavely, 8, Ridgeland: “We need to love God, we need to praise God, pray to God, and walk with God.”
Brittney Huegel, Ridgeland: “We need more community, and more exposure to one another, more social interaction, more hugs. We need each other.”
Melanie Haro, Hilton Head Island: “Kindness. If people could make kindness the first thing they go to when interacting with one another.”
Katelin Chapman, Hilton Head Island: “It (the title) still applies. God is love. So, if you replace the word ‘love’ with ‘God,’ what the world needs now is God.”
Rocky Whitehead, Hilton Head Island: “Just treat people like you want to be treated. Simple as that.”
