Let Freedom Ring.



young and old

all colors of skin and eye

all sizes and shapes;

all faiths and creeds;

all people who love -

in our grief and anger

we are united.

Our diversity

is our great strength.

Violence spread

in the name of religion

is hate.

No matter what hatred

launches to still them,

our hearts beat on as one.

Rising from all over the world

comes one voice

strident and clear:

wherever you threaten freedom

we stand as one,

and we speak

with the voice of freedom.
