Inspiring – We are one

ETA: This is my 250th post. Just noticed after publishing. An Apt one to make it for 250 🙂

The girl has been practicing this song for the past few weeks with sign language.  The first graders are singing this song today for eighth graders at their graduation. Every time she sings this song I feel good especially when she holds her hands together and say “We are one”. The lyrics are too good that made me share it here.

By the way the dad/daughter duo have now moved on to be Simba/Kiara from Mufasa/Simba. I didn’t blame them until the dad said I am the hyena 😦  why me?

Highlighted the lyrics that touched me (I ended up highlighting all the lines so took off the highlight).

As you go through life you’ll see
There is so much that we
Don’t understand

And the only thing we know
Is things don’t always go
The way we planned

But you’ll see every day
That we’ll never turn away
When it seems all your dreams come undone

We will stand by your side
Filled with hope and filled with pride
We are more than we are
We are one

If there’s so much I must be
Can I still just be me
The way I am?

Can I trust in my own heart
Or am I just one part
Of some big plan?

Even those who are gone
Are with us as we go on
Your journey has only begun

Tears of pain, tears of joy
One thing nothing can destroy
Is our pride, deep inside
We are one

We are one, you and I
We are like the earth and sky
One family under the sun

All the wisdom to lead
All the courage that you need
You will find when you see
We are one

The kids are watching this movie (The Lion King 2) on Friday with Popcorn and that marks the end of this academic year at school. She is set free for next 3 months 🙂 🙂
