Nelson Madela
Today we must be better
Today we must be strong
To be more than expected
To do more than just get along

We are the inspiration
That we do often seek
The vision and the purpose
Of which others will speak

And now the torch is passed
A million glowing lights
To keep the fire burning
For every human’s rights

My dream will live forever
I know it in my heart
This is not the ending
This is just the start
