EVERYBODY CAN BE GREAT

IMG_3020

(Dedicated to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.)

‘Everybody can be great

because everybody can serve’

everybody can love

everybody can give

Haiti – Syria – Albania – Ghana – Philippines

Everybody has the ability

to smile

to laugh

to hug

to cheer

Olympics – Rome – China – Atlanta

Everybody has the ability

to touch a hand

to hold a hand

to grab a hand

and to steer someone else from doing wrong

Chicago – Columbine – Aurora – Dallas – Charleston

Everybody has the propensity

to know when a friend is in need

to know when a child is lost

to know when a debt isn’t paid

to know when someone needs shelter

(Repeat)

‘Everybody can be great

because everybody can serve’

everybody can love

everybody can give

Everybody has the ability

to smile

to laugh

to hug

to cheer

Everybody has the ability

to touch a hand

to hold a hand

to grab a hand

and to steer someone else from doing wrong

Everybody has the ability

to stand for what is right

to speak up for those who are wronged

to knock down a barrier someone else put up

to open a door someone else closed

You have a right

to know you are loved

to know you are important

to know you are great

to know that God considers you worthy

(Repeat)

‘Everybody can be great

because everybody can serve’

everybody can love

everybody can give

Everybody has the ability

to smile

to laugh

to hug

to cheer

Everybody has the ability

to touch a hand

to hold a hand

to grab a hand

and to steer someone else from doing wrong

We have a right
