This original tune is dedicated to all the front-line people in our communities and around the world that have come forward in the courageous battle against this recent pandemic. Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. They inspire us, motivate us, guide us and give us courage to keep going when things get tough – they are our role models.
If you choose to perform this tune with your students, we encourage you to ask them to think about their own heroes. Perhaps they could share with the class who has made an impact in their own personal lives. Who could they silently dedicate this song to when they sing it from their heart? Or perhaps there is a particular community figure, family or staff member that has made an extra special effort in this battle. Let this song speak to you and to your students however seems fitting.
Every now and then a song comes along that really moves us and makes us think about the greater possibilities in our life. Our hope is that this song will help your students connect with each other, with the community and within themselves to those heroes.
