Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

Pass it On


Pass It On

You can talk about your future
You can talk about your plans
All your talk is never ending
If you will not lend your hands

As a child I was imparted
With many riches green and gold
In the Sundays playing records
And in the stories being told
We must pass it on

It answered through the inquisition
And it suffered through the plagues
It survived all those years of Penal Law
Will it survive our new ways

Teach them to ride our winged horses
Pass them down the silver reins
Hope tomorrow finds a refuge
In the song of yesterday

There are those who never made it
Though the veil of history
O' they never were related
O' we never sowed the seeds

But our song will now surrender
And our heroes will not die
And our rhythm won't be taken
And out story will not lie
We must pass it on
