We Have Come A Long Way

We have come a long way
We’ve all heard that before
Women and blacks can vote
But they best not ask for more

A nation built by immigrants
Wants to close the door
On this nation’s foundation
But we ask, what for?

Based on misinformation
And words that stoke up fear
We deny these families the chance
To start a new life here

So I ask one favor of you
Before you start to condemn
That you talk to these families
And truly get to know them

You will be surprised to know
They are not different from you and me
The community we can build together
Is a beautiful sight for all to see

So lets show eachother compassion
Overflowing with love and grace
And build a world together
That is a wonderful place
