During the protest I went to during the days when the president who shall not be named was committing some of his most egregious crimes against humanity, I found myself singing many of the same songs I sang back in the 60's during the Vietnam War protests. I wanted a new anthem we could all sing together, so I wrote this. Please learn it and share it and sing it at your next event! And check out the video I made to go with it:

We will not be divided
We will not be led by hate
We will defend the rights of others
Whose very survival is at stake

Chorus
If you can’t march, then you can sing
If you can’t sing, then you can pray
If you can’t pray just close your eyes and look within
Together we will find the strength we have within our hearts
And with that strength we’ll see that evil doesn’t win

We will not be divided
We will not be led by greed
We will shine a light on those who suffer
For we know justice is a basic human need

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
We will not be divided
We’ll not be led by ignorance
We’ll raise our voices for those who have no power
And together we will come to their defense

Chorus:
If you can’t march, then you can sing
If you can’t sing, then you can pray
If you can’t pray just close your eyes and look within
Together we will use the strength we have within our hearts
And with that strength we’ll see that evil doesn’t win

Bridge:
Sometimes it feels like love and goodness have no power
But It’s imperative we don’t give up in these darkest hours
As humans scorch the earth and brutalize each other
We come here together and stand with one another

So If you can march, then take the streets
If you can sing, let’s hear your song
If you can pray then shake the souls of those who sin
Together we will use the strength we have within our hearts
And with that strength we’ll see that evil doesn’t win

So If you can march, then take the streets
If you can sing, let’s hear your song
If you can pray then shake the souls of those who sin
Together we will use the strength we have within our hearts
And with that strength we’ll see that evil doesn’t win
And with that strength we’ll see that evil doesn’t win
