Favorite Quote:
-The brightest future will always be based on the forgotten past
- It takes who you are and where you've been to make the person you are today
-As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person
-To learn to succeed, you must first learn to fail


All these years I was waiting
For our live to change
The authorities that lied
Are put to blame
But can we change the world?

The answer is
Yes we can
Succeed
Yes we can
You and me
Yes we can
Pray together
Yes we can

Four years later
We have a new president
Now we will fear no danger
'Cause he's giving a speech
Of what we can achieve in our lives
And what we can become
But can we let people see
What we've done

The answer is
Yes we can
Succeed
Yes we Can
You and me
Yes we can
Pray together
Yes we can

You told me that I'm preaching
Praying for better lives
You told me that my reaching
Is the remedy to find
I'll never stop believing
For everyone to be kind
Can we change the way we live
And let the truth sing out

The answer is
Yes we can
Succeed
Yes we can
You and me
Yes we can
Pray together
Yes we can
Amen
Yes we can

Again, how effective in letting the outside see and FEEL what you are experiencing inside - this time full of hope and possibilities. Wonderful!!
