There is a video online of 10-year-old Rachel talking to her classmates about world hunger. She tells them they can end it, together, if they “look into the future, and see the light that shines there.”

lyrics

Song For Rachel Corrie - purpose

Look into the future, see the light that shines there
See the world that we make, a world free of warfare
Where everybody wants the same things
A place to feel safe and loved in, and wings

Look into the future, see the light that shines there
Though it seems that she's gone, I think she will be there
There with the dispossessed still lookin, for home
With the underdog refugees and the hungry, she'll roam

INSTRUMENTAL

And everybody wants the same things
A place to feel safe and loved in, and wings

To all my fallen heroes, I offer up a brief prayer
Though it seems that you're gone, I know you will be there
Where everybody wants the same things
In a place you feel safe and loved in, and wings

Look into the future, see the light that shines there
