The World Is A Rainbow

I have no words to express my sorrow at the traumatic events our country is experiencing.

It pains me to see so much suffering among our black brothers and sisters. As a former inner city teacher, I witnessed a very small portion of the struggles minorities experience.

Here’s a quote from one of my favorite songs that my kids and I sang. It always gave me hope for a better tomorrow. When my students sang it together, all their beautiful voices gave me chills.

“The world is a rainbow that’s filled with many colors. Yellow, black, and white and brown, you see them all around.

The world is a rainbow with many kinds of people. It takes all kinds of people to make the world go round.

Now you be you and I’ll be me, that’s the way we were meant to be. But the world is a mixing cup, just look what happens when you stir it up.

The world is a rainbow with many kinds of people and when we work together it’s such a sight to see.

The world is beautiful when we live in harmony.” -Greg and Steve, Volume 2
