Little voices calling
Little voices laughing
Little voices singing
All those precious little voices
Brightening our day
Stealing our hearts
Shaping our lives
In the blink of an eye, they’re gone.
Now there’s just silence
Where those little voices used to be
Now it’s up to you
It’s up to me
Will you make the choice and be a voice?
Will you walk humbly, show mercy and love your neighbor?
Will you LOVE your neighbor?
Not fear the neighbor who looks different than you
Or hurt the neighbor who thinks differently than you do
But will you LOVE your neighbor?
Will you love yourself?
Will you teach a child today?
Will you be your brother’s keeper?
Will you make someone smile?
Will you do all you can
To love, to forgive, to include
So that the millions of little voices who are still here
To brighten our days
Steal our hearts
And shape our lives
Can grow tall and strong
To learn from us how to forgive and love
To learn from us how to help and to include
And eventually, one day,
Become the big, confident voices
That will change our world
And make it better than it is today
