ISSUE: ONE. Other Campaigns

D-PAN, the Deaf Professional Arts Network took John Mayer's song "Waiting on the World to Change" and adds a twist. The song its self has an underlying message of hope even though it also centers around the generations inaction due to lack of power and corruption of leaders. He believes, however, that as our generation becomes more powerful, the world will change.
When John Mayer preformed this song in 2007 at Live Earth, he changed the lyrics to "we're NOT waiting on the world to change."
When describing this song, Mayer said ""It’s saying, ‘Well, I’ll just watch American Idol because I know that if I were engaged in changing anything for the better, or the better as I see it, it would go unnoticed or be completely ineffective.' A lot of people have that feeling."
