Michael Jackson Heal the World Lyrics:
[Spoken:]
Think about the generations and to say we want to make it a better
world for our children and our children’s children. So that they know
it’s a better world for them; and think if they can make it a better place.

There’s a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could be much
Brighter than tomorrow.
And if you really try
you’ll find there’s no need to cry
In this place you’ll feel
there’s no hurt or sorrow.
There are ways to get there
If you care enough for the living
Make a little space, make a better place.

[Chorus:]
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for
You and for me.

If you want to know why
there’s a love that cannot lie
Love is strong
It only cares for joyful giving.
If we try we shall see
In this bliss we cannot feel
Fear or dread
We stop existing and start living
Then it feels that always
Love’s enough for us growing
Make a better world, make a better world.

[Chorus:]
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race.
There are people dying

If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for
You and for me.

[Bridge:]
And the dream we would conceived in
Will reveal a joyful face
And the world we once believed in
Will shine again in grace
Then why do we keep strangling life
Wound this earth, crucify it’s soul
Though it’s plain to see, this world is heavenly
Be God’s glow.

We could fly so high
Let our spirits never die
In my heart I feel
You are all my brothers
Create a world with no fear
Together we’ll cry happy tears
See the nations turn
Their swords into plowshares
We could really get there
If you cared enough for the living
Make a little space to make a better place.

[Chorus:]
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for
You and for me.

[Refrain (2x)]

There are people dying if you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me.
There are people dying if you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me.

You and for me / Make a better place
You and for me / Make a better place
You and for me / Make a better place
You and for me / Heal the world we live in
You and for me / Save it for our children
You and for me / Heal the world we live in
You and for me / Save it for our children
You and for me / Heal the world we live in
You and for me / Save it for our children
You and for me / Heal the world we live in
You and for me / Save it for our children
Lyrics: Heal the World, Michael Jackson [end]

Subhanallah…bayi 1,5 tahun korban tsunami ditemukan selamat. Kondisi Desa Pasapuat, Dusun Saumanganya, Kecamataan Pagai Utara, Kabupaten Kepulauan Mentawai pascagempa 7,2 SR disertai gelombang tsunami poran poranda tanpa bekas.
Ajaib, bayi berumur 1,5 tahun yang terseret tsunami ditemukan dalam keadaan selamat oleh seorang anak berumur 10 tahun di daerah Munte Baru, Kecamatan Pagai Selatan, Kabupaten Mentawai, Sumatera Barat, Rabu. Eki, salah seorang staf Puskesmas Sikakap mengatakan pada Antara, bayi tersebut diantar ke Puskesmas pukul 11.00 WIB oleh keluarga anak yang menemukannya.
Ia memperkirakan bayi itu ditemukan sekitar satu jam sebelumnya. “Kepala bayi ini terluka dan badannya demam,” kata Eki.
Bayi tersebut, kata Eki, berdasarkan cerita anak yang menemukan, diketahui berawal dari adanya suara tangisan anak kecil. Begitu sumber suara itu didekati, ternyata seorang bayi tergolek sendirian di daerah Munte. Bayi tersebut diambil dan dibawa anak yang menemukan ke keluarganya ke atas bukit. Dia mengatakan, sejauh ini belum diketahui siapa orang tua dari bayi tersebut.
Lain lagi dengan cerita  Iram Sababalat (26). Ketika itu dia  baru saja menempelkan badannya di atas pembaringan di rumahnya di Dusun Muntei Baru Baru, Desa Betumonga, Kecamatan Pagai Utara, Kabupaten Kepulauan Mentawai, Sumatera Barat, Senin (25/10/2010) malam. Ia habis bertugas di sebuah penginapan yang biasa didatangi turis asing di dusun tersebut.
Di pembaringan yang sama, istrinya, Maria Tubeket (18), dan anak mereka, Irwandi (3), sudah menunggunya.
“Saya siap (sudah) makan, baru mau tidur,” papar Iram, yang bekerja sebagai tenaga pengamanan, mengawali ceritanya soal bencana Mentawai.
Senin malam itu, gempa yang berpusat di kedalaman 10 kilometer pada jarak 78 kilometer arah barat daya Pulau Pagai Selatan, yang hanya dipisahkan selat selebar 1 kilometer dari Pulau Pagai Utara, sekonyong-konyong mengguncang rumah Iram. Nyaris bersamaan, tsunami menggulung rumahnya. Tak ada kesempatan melarikan diri. Dunia Iram berubah gelap.
Saat tersadar, Iram sudah berada di atas pohon durian, yang lazim dipergunakan sebagai denda adat (tulou) di kalangan masyarakat tradisional Mentawai. Iram segera turun dan lari menyelamatkan diri ke dataran yang lebih tinggi sebelum datang gelombang kedua. “Gelombangnya melewati tinggi pohon kelapa,” kata Iram dengan raut muka kosong.
Tsunami berputar di tengah dusun itu dan menyapu cepat apa saja yang ada di atasnya ke arah laut sebelum datang lagi gelombang kedua.
Iram—malam itu juga—menemukan Maria selamat di bawah batang sagu, yang menjadi makanan pokok sebagian orang Mentawai, sementara anaknya ditemukan terpisah dari ibunya dan dalam kondisi sudah tidak bernyawa.
“Namanya Irwandi Sababalat,” kata Iram menyebutkan nama lengkap anaknya. Ia pun tak kuasa membendung air matanya.
Kemarin, Iram dan Maria dievakuasi ke Puskesmas Sikap di Desa Sikakap, Kecamatan Sikakap. Di tempat tersebut juga ada puluhan korban tsunami lain—mulai dari orang tua, dewasa, hingga anak-anak—yang menderita patah tulang dan luka terbuka. Mereka dirawat seadanya.

Here are some tips to help you avoid classroom culture clash in those heady first months of teaching abroad:

1. Dress right. Jeans, sneakers, and just-out-of-bed hair may be okay for teachers in the U.S., but in many parts of the world, a neat appearance counts far more than credentials. In Korea dark clothes lend an air of authority. Red is to be avoided at all costs. In Morocco female teachers don’t wear pants, sleeveless blouses, or short skirts.

2. Behave appropriately. When Judith Johnson asked 250 students at the Sichuan Institute of Foreign Languages in China what they liked and disliked about native speaker English teachers, the students’ main gripe was the informality of foreign teachers, who often seem to undermine their own authority by acting in undignified ways. In the U.S. teachers go on a first-name basis with students, sit on their desks, sip coffee, and even bounce off the walls without causing student discomfort or losing prestige. But these behaviors don’t export well.

3. Don’t worry if students seem unresponsive at first. Americans are used to participatory classrooms with plenty of teacher-student dialogue. Elsewhere, students are often trained to be silent, good listeners, and memorizers. In my classes in Poland, the Balkans, and Mongolia, students wore impassive classroom masks the first few weeks of class. It’s disconcerting to stand in front of a sea of blank faces, but expecting it reduces the shock. Introduce new concepts, such as discussion and role-play gradually. You’ll be surprised at how students will come to embrace the change.

4. Choose topics carefully. In the 1980s in totalitarian Yugoslavia I made the mistake of asking students to debate the pros and cons of capital punishment. A painful silence fell over the room. What discussion was possible, someone pointed out to me later, when the government’s position was clear? There are still many countries in the world where people are hesitant to voice opinions because of a fear of reprisal. If you’re conducting a classroom debate, remember that there’s a distaste for Western-style argumentation in Middle-Eastern societies, and in Japan it’s offensive for an individual to urge others to accept his opinion.

Certain topics may be taboo for cultural reasons: Most Americans don’t want to discuss their salaries or religious beliefs; Japanese may be disinclined to talk about their inner feelings; the French think questions about their family life are rude.

5. Don’t ask, “Do you understand?” In China and Japan, students will nod yes, even if they’re totally lost, in an attempt to save face for the teacher. Even in a country as far west as Turkey, yes often means no.

Nor should you expect students to ask questions in class if they don’t understand something. A former student of mine told me: “In China, a student who asks questions is considered a pain in the neck.” Check understanding by asking students to paraphrase or write questions they have in groups.

6. Avoid singling students out. Our society fosters a competitive individualism which is clearly manifested in our classrooms. American students are not shy about displaying their knowledge. In classrooms outside the U.S., however, showing solidarity with classmates and conforming to the status quo is often more important than looking good for the teacher. In Turkey and Montenegro students told me they disliked volunteering answers too often because it made them look like show-offs and attracted the evil eye of envy. This holds true in Japan and China, too, where proverbs express the cultural idea in a nutshell: “The clever hawk hides its claws” and “The nail that stands up must be pounded down.”

If you want to play a game, make the competition among groups rather than among individuals. If you need to discipline a student, do so in private.

7. Be aware of cross-cultural communication styles. French students appreciate wit. Venezuelan students like boisterous rapid-fire exchanges. In Japan, where debate is not as valued as in the U.S., students appreciate long pauses in discussions and silent “think time” after you ask a question. “Hollow drums make the most noise” goes a Japanese proverb, and Japanese students are uncomfortable blurting out the first thing that comes to mind. American teachers, who are uncomfortable with silence, tend to anticipate the student’s words or repeat their original question—both irritating interruptions for the Japanese student.

8. Present a rationale for what you do in class. Your pedagogy is going to be very different from what students are used to. They’ll conform much more eagerly to new classroom content and procedures if they understand the benefits.

9. Expect the best of your students. They’ll be serious about learning English because their economic advancement often depends upon mastering it.

10. Relax and enjoy yourself. Happiness in the classroom is contagious.
