Song of We

This song of We: forged from centuries of working hands & durable hearts. Heavy tears & spirits soaring. Europeans to Haitians, Mexicans to Native Americans. Our vibrant song: so courageous & enduring. Written with the sweat & blood of slave-wage workers & whip-scarred slaves running for freedom. Methodists to Muslims, Jews to Buddhists. Scientists, artists, teachers & farmers. Veterans & the vetted. Rule makers & law breakers. The LGBTQ & countless masses that stood in Ellis Island queues. Our immigrant tongues, immigrant voices, immigrant lives & immigrant stories. All our pain, promises, disappointments & elations. Hear our voices rise in this binding & abiding song of We.
