We live in a world where everybody is on the run. Fast food, fast fashion, fast living, our life seems to resume to consuming and producing as fast as possible. …

Romanian singer-songwriter Sergiu Bolota has recently released his new song Every Little Thing. After collaborating on his previous single We Were Young with Eurovision star Stig Rästa, this time he chose to do it all by himself, as he himself composed and wrote the song, while Catalin Ivascu produced it.

“I know it’s almost a year gap between We Were Young and Every Little Thing, but I preferred to take some time to release new music. I really wanted to do it all by myself: both lyrics and music. …

War. Terror. Crisis. Fear. Not really the description you’d expect of our world today, but sadly it’s true, these words depict the situation in the world perfectly: states in conflict with each other, attacks on humanity, hunger and health crisis, refugees on the run — a world dominated by fear, instead of confidence and hope, freedom and peace. You might ask yourself: What did we do to deserve this? Didn’t the world learn from previous mistakes? Weren’t two world wars enough to realize that violence in not always the first step or the right solution?

Well, I guess not. But who is to blame? The world leaders, the terror organizations, the political institutions or even ourselves ? However you may put it, there never is a single guilty party, which is to blame for everything. I don’t even think one single party should be hold responsible for world problems or the situations today. Time shouldn’t be wasted on looking for the guilty one. We are all guilty, for waiting for others to solve the problems or expecting for someone to do all the decisions, while we stand and watch, comment or criticize. Standing in front of the TV, depicting the ideal passive citizen, silent and ignorant, living in his own safety bubble, far away from conflicts or revolutions, skipping the news channel out of boredom. Sadly, the majority of the world fits into this category instead of that of an active citizen, who cares about something and acts on it. No, I am not speaking of a perfect citizen model, who has all the right answers to all the questions, who doesn’t think of anything other than participation, but of a citizen who cares for his rights and those of others like him, who stands for what he believes in and one, that goes after something he desires. A motivated, determined, informed individual, willing to fight for change and achieve his goals. We all act in our own interest, guided by the goals we want to achieve, calculating the costs and the benefits of our actions and maybe sometimes come to the conclusion that in some situations there is more to lose than it is to win, but I believe that in the face of the situation in the world today, one shouldn’t stay silent and watch from the background, but step in and try to make a change, no matter how small. To try to explain why our participation is important for accomplishing the goal of world peace and wellbeing, I will go back to the first group of people who wanted to make a change in order to reach these goals : The United Nations. In 1945 nations were in ruins, World War II was over and the world wanted peace. So 51 nations came together to find a solution to get out of the situation the war caused. They gathered to create a set of rules for a new world in peace: A Charta of rights, obligations and tasks that have to be respected to maintain world peace and to make the idea of it realistic. This document is based on the cooperation of nations that have something in common: the same goals. Goals to make the world a peaceful and safe place. …
