Do You Remember,
When Martin Luther King Jr said he had a dream to be considered equal to white people?
I Did once too.
Do you remember,
When Rosa Parks said No, when she was riding on the bus?
I did once too.
Do you remember,
When Cesar Chavez once marched for chanting "Si se puede" for the rights of the farm workers?
I did once too.
Do you remember,
When those people were once like you and me, sitting thinking of how to the world needs to live in peace and harmony, love and respect, equal and free?
I did once too.
Do you remember?
You waiting for the next person to sit and say no, to march for equality, for freedom, for our rights. When it was you all along?
I did once too.
