Members of the Stoneman Douglas High School Drama Club wrote and performed a powerful moving ballad last night at a town hall in Florida. The name of the song is “Shine.” Members of the audience participated enthusiastically by using the lights on their cell phone to create their own shine. Here are the lyrics. These kids are incredible and this song may very well be the signature of their crusade. Look out, Donald Trump. RawStory:

“You’re not gonna knock us down. We’ll get back up again,” the chorus rang throughout the arena. “You may have hurt us but promise we’ll be stronger, and we’re not going to let you win. We’re going to put up a fight. You may have brought the dark but together we will shine the light.”

“We’re gonna stand tall,” she sang. “Gonna raise above all the voices so we never ever fall.”

Another student sang a warning, “we’re done with all your little games. We’re tired of hearing that we’re too young to ever make a change.”

The encouraged everyone that they could “hug a little tighter, love a little more. Laugh a little harder. We can stand up and roar.”

Each student stood at a microphone with a call to action. “We refuse to be ignored by those who will not listen,” one young woman said.

“There are so many things you can do to become involved,” another said.

“Reach out to your Congressman. Mail, call and tweet,” yet another student said.

“The smallest of words can make the biggest difference,” one young woman explained.

“Be the voice for those that don’t have one,” a young man said.

“Together we have the power to change the world around us,” the final student urged.
