The Elvis Challenge
28 Nov 2009
In Walk A Mile In My Shoes, Elvis Presely once sang
"If I could be you, if you could be me
For just one hour, if we could find a way
To get inside each other's mind
If you could see you through my eyes
Instead your own ego I believe you'd be
I believe you'd be surprised to see
That you've been blind
Walk a mile in my shoes
just walk a mile in my shoes
Before you abuse, criticize and accuse
Then walk a mile in my shoes"
(words & music by Joe South)
Take the Elvis Challenge:
1) Find someone of your same gender.
2) Walk a mile holding their hand (or any distance).
3) Write to us here at the website. Tell us how it made you feel.
4) Photos would be wonderful.
