“Shine” by Sawyer Garrity and Andrea Pena, sung by students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida

A special prayer song today in the wake of the massacre at #ChristchurchMosques. This violence will not end until we end it.

You, You took my city away
You tore down the walls
And opened up all the gates
You, you ruined this town
You burned all of the bridges
And you slowly let us drown

But you’re not going to knock us down
We’ll get back up again
You may have hurt us
But I promise we’ll be stronger and

We’re not going to let you win
We’re putting up a fight
You may have brought the dark
But together we will shine the light and wooo ohoh
We will be something special ohohoh
We’re going to shine

We’re, we’re going to stand tall
Going to raise our voices so we never, ever fall
We’re done with all your little games
We’re tired of hearing that
We’re too young to ever make a change

‘cause you’re not going to knock us down
We’ll get back up again
You may have hurt us
But I promise we’ll be stronger and

We’re not going to let you win
We’re putting up a fight
You may have brought the dark
But together we will shine the light

We can hug a little tighter
We can love a little more
Love a little harder
We can stand up and roar

If we all come together
It will be alright
Stand up for one another
And, we’ll never give up the fight

We’re not going to let you win
We’re putting up a fight
You may have brought the dark
But together we will shine the light and wooo ohoh
We will be something special ohohoh
We’re going to shine
