This time, something different is happening. This time, our children are calling us to account. The Parkland, Fla., students don’t have the kind of lobbyists or big budgets for attack ads that their opponents do. Most of them can’t even vote yet. But they have the power so often inherent in youth: to see the world anew; to reject the old constraints, outdated conventions and cowardice too often dressed up as wisdom. The power to insist that America can be better. – Barack Obama
Inspired by the youth in our nation who are rising strong, Heather Houston recently created this beautiful multilayered song. She dedicates it to all of the powerful movements that are inspiring change in our nation.
Oh take my hand now yes you belong.
And lift your voice now we’ll sing this song.
And we will root down into the ground, now.
We’re rising strong, yeah we’re rising strong!
And we are warriors of the light.
And we are stronger when we unite.
We are here to waken the love.
We are rising strong, yeah we’re rising strong!
