For years, Dolly Parton has been a true American hero. Besides being a country music icon, she is also a generous soul. For example, in the autumn of 2016 when wildfires were ravaging the Tennessee country near her famous Dollywood Park, Parton offered every family affected by the flames $1,000 per month to help them get back on their feet. It was an offer that few people would be generous enough to make.
But now that Donald Trump is president, the country has been thrown into a raging chaos. People are protesting and everyone seems to be on constant edge – especially when the conversation veers into politics.
Dolly Parton is not shy about her Christian faith. And in an emotional plea to average Americans, she hopes to remind people to love their neighbors. Check out her call to action below!
During a show in Charlotte, North Carolina, which is one of the most divided states in the country right now, Dolly addressed the people in her audience. Because her words were so touching, many were moved to tears.
While she was scheduled to sing her hit song “Hello God”, Dolly decided to use her celebrity platform to urge Americans to wake up to the truth. Although we may not agree, we need to remember we are united. Hate is not the answer.
Dolly urged her fellow Americans, “Nobody knows when the end is coming, some people will tell you they do. Well that’s a secret known only to God, not a fanatical few. It might be today, or it might be tomorrow or in a million years or two.
“But in the meantime we gotta be happy, we gotta work together, we gotta do better, we gotta dream more, care more, do more, be more…and it wouldn’t hurt to pray more, right? So let’s just stop this old doomsday attitude and get on with the show…Just let the spirit flow. What do you say?
“Be happy! Everybody just do your part. We may not be able to save the whole world but we can save the world we’re living in, the one around us with our family and friends. Sometimes that can spread out. Just do what we can.”
More than 4 million people have watched Dolly’s plea to “be happy”. Here is what people like you are saying about her sermon.
“That is one heck of a song if everybody would listen to the words and pay attention this world would be in a better place thank you,” Richard Brizendine wrote.
“You are such a blessing to so many just by your presence. You make out hearts smile!” Connie Abeling shared.
“Dolly you are an inspiration to so many many people! I just shared this with my daughter and nephew. Their little eyes never left the screen! God is so good and just keeps using you in a mighty way!” wrote Susan Hyatt.
