We are getting ready to celebrate the great USA
Yes we are on the eve of Independence day
Yet, what do we recall every 4th of July?
If children ask the meaning, what is your reply?
If we celebrate freedom; are we really free?
Is every person counted in this equality?
What does freedom mean as we celebrate?
Are there people yet that we need to liberate?
Look around you now and see what you can see
Is there anyone around you still longing to be free?
Freedom is a word and we like to raise it high
But if we deny some then freedom we deny
There has to be a change if freedom is our call
Let's resolve together to respect the rights of all
Breaking down the walls that defy equality
May this 4th of July spark resolve in you and me
