The Pink Story
A boy from a small community in Nova Scotia wore a pink polo shirt on his first day of High School. A few bullies harassed him and physically threatened to beat him up for wearing pink. This incident was witnessed by a number of students and soon it came to the attention of two Senior boys attending this High School. David Shepard and Travis Price decided to take action against the bullying in their school. David and Travis went to a nearby second hand store and bought over 50 pink shirts. They also went online and e-mailed classmates asking them to join their anti-bullying cause and to wear pink.

The next day at their school, the boys were greeted by a "Sea of Pink". There were over 50 students wearing the discounted pink shirts and hundreds more wearing their own pink wardrobe. It was an amazing outpouring of support for the boy that had been bullied.

When the bullied boy came to school that day he was overwhelmed to see his schoolmates supporting him with a "Sea of Pink". The message was loud and clear. We won't allow bullying in our school. The bullies got the message and the teasing and attacks stopped.

Here is a link to the full story as reported by CBC.

Song Lyrics


Songs written and performed by Charlotte Lirette:

Austins Song (Angels Among Us)
Charlotte Lirette

I met a boy today. He had not much to say.
But as I listened carefully.
He showed me grace and love. And how to laugh above,
Those little things life can bring.

There are angels among us. Giving light that we might see.
There are angels among us, live each day eternally.

The wisdom in his eyes. Showed me we all decide.
To live in the moment or let life pass us by.
The beauty life can show. This little boy just seemed to know.
His smile could light the world so bright.

There are angels among us. Giving light that we might see.
There are angels among us, live each day eternally.

There is good in all we have to share
Sometimes life can be somewhat hard to bear.
Just lean on me. And I'll lean on you
And some how we'll see it thru.

There are angels among us. Giving light that we might see.
There are angels among us, live each day eternally.

Each Of Us Is A Flower
Charlotte Diamond

Chorus:
Each of us is a flower
Growing in life's garden
Each of us is a flower
We need the sun and rain.

Each of us is a flower
Growing in life's garden
Each of us is a flower
We need the sun and rain.

Verse:
Sun, shine your warmth on me
Moon, cool me with your night
Wind, bring the gentle rain
Earth, take my roots down deep.

Chorus



I'm Not Perfect
Laurie Berkner

I'm not perfect, no I'm not
I'm not perfect but I've like what I've got
Because I do my very best, I do my very best
I do my very best each day
I do my very best, I do my very best
And I hope you like me that way.
You're not perfect, no you're not
You're not perfect but I've like what you've got
Because you do your very best, You do your very best
You do your very best each day
You do your very best, You do your very best
And I like you that way.

*Teachers aren't perfect

*Mom's and Dad's aren't perfect



Joy To The World
Hoyt Axton

Jeremiah was a bullfrog
Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But our friendship sure was fine
Yes, our friendship sure was fine
Singin' ...

Chorus: Joy to the world
          All the boys and girls now
          Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
          Joy to you and me

If I were the king of the world
Tell you what I'd do
I'd throw away the cars and the bars and the war
And I'd share my love with you
Sing it now...

Chorus

You know I love the good life
Love to have my fun
I'm a high life flyer and a rainbow rider
A straight shootin' son-of-a-gun
I said a straight shootin' son-of-a-gun
Chorus
Chorus



Love Can Build A Bridge
John Jarvis, Naomi Judd, Paul Overstreet

I'd gladly walk across the desert
With no shoes upon my feet
To share with you the last bite
Of bread I had to eat
I would swim out to save you
In your sea of broken dreams
When all your hopes are sinkin
Let me show you what love means

(chorus)

Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Dont you think its time?
Dont you think its time?

I would whisper love so loudly
Every heart could understand
That love and only love
Can join the tribes of man
I would give my hearts desire
So that you might see
The first step is to realize
That it all begins with you and me

(repeat chorus)

When we stand together
It's our finest hour
We can do anything, anything
Keep believin in the power

(repeat chorus)



La Bamba
Richie Valens

Para bailar la bamba Para bailar la bamba
Se necesita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia pa'mí y pa' ti
Ay Arriba y arriba

Ay arriba y arriba por ti seré
Por ti seré Por ti seré

Yo no soy marinero, Yo no soy marinero
Soy capitan Soy capitan Soy capitan
Bamba, Bamba Bamba, Bamba Bamba, Bamba

Para bailar la bamba Para bailar la bamba
Se necesita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia pa'mí y pa' ti

Ay Arriba y arriba
Ay arriba y arriba por ti seré
Por ti seré Por ti seré

Yo no soy marinero, Yo no soy marinero
Soy capitan Soy capitan Soy capitan
Bamba, Bamba Bamba, Bamba Bamba, Bamba
