How many photos did you see like this last week?
Smiling children with backpacks
New clothes, new shoes, new attitudes
How many parents did you see like me last week?
Holding cameras and lunchboxes
New dreams, new hopes, new promises
How many children did you see starting off last week?
Riding bikes and buses
New schools, new teachers, new fears
I’m sure there were hundreds
Maybe even billions around the world
We really are more alike than we are different
We really are hopeful for their future
We really do hope our dreams come true
