In Our Family
Written June 16, 1997
I was raised to love humanity and fight injustice. My parents are two of the most amazing people I know. I am the person I am today because of them.


Every child has a hero. And I’ve had one or two.
But my life would have no meaning if not for both of you.
You taught me how to walk and showed me I could fly.
You gave me all your love and held me when I cried.
And you gave me strength when I needed it the most.
You helped me find my way whenever I was lost.
Cause you’re a part of me. And I’m a part of you.
That’s how it’s always gonna be. In our family.
All the simple things in life are what I remember best.
Like a story round the table and the way you always laughed.
And you raised us in your mirror reflections of your life.
And you showed us there’s a new world within the dreamer’s eyes.
And some day when we learn to live with one another. All the dreams that we share will go on and on forever.
Now I have children of my own and all our memories. And I know we’ll go on living within our families.
