Black History Month

As time goes on we always hope
That advancement is being made
So in the case of Black History
We must never let progress fade

We want to learn and become better
And treat everyone with dignity
As the sunrises and the sun sets
We must have freedom and equality

For freedom is granted to everyone
That’s what makes our country great
And it wasn’t always that way, of course
It took time to abolished slavery in every state

But progress continues to march on
And although we cannot erase the past
Most of us try to treat each other fairly
If we do, I think that this progress will last

So let’s remember Black History Month
Let’s learn from so many past mistakes
And continue making progress each day
Remember that fairness is what it takes!
