I believe the children are our future
Teach them well
And let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty
They possess inside
Give them a sense of pride
To make it easier
Let the children's laughter
Remind us how we used to be

Everybody's searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone
Who fulfilled my needs
A lonely place to be
And so I learned to depend on me.

I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone's shadow
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I lived as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity

Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well
And let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty
They possess inside
Give them a sense of pride
To make it easier
Let the children's laughter
Remind us how we used to be

I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone's shadow
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I lived as I believe.
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity

Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

And If by chance that special place
That you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love

    I love this song. I am singing it at a concert. I'm 14 and my teachers and peers think I have an amazing voice. I say it's ok. They all disagree. I take their word for it and keep on singing everywhere I go. Singing is my only escape from the world. When I hear a song I like I go super crazy and I get really excited and I just break out into an all song and dance. It's like a special thing for me. I love music and it's my only connection to myself, the world, and other people. I've had friends who I've known all my life and just found out they could sing. How would it feel to know a friend forever but don't know anything at all. They sing a song and you sit there in amazement because you now understand that you didn't know everything about that person. Music isn't just about singing or dancing or popping and locking. It's about connecting and exploring with yourself, others and the world. It's about making many connections. So the next time you hear a song you like, sing it. Sing it until your voice cracks, sing it until you lose your voice, sing it until you can't sing anymore!

    This song will come on the radio and my heart will let me hear the words. God would let me know that I had share alot of love. Listening to this song made me cry with open heart god gave me the greatest love for all to see with in me. So the words blesses me with his love by showing me and talking to me though others. Whitney voice is like an angel of god that calls out to other who felt the ways of life. When I was down at times her voice woke me up, to the point I look up to the heaven and ask to be stronger.
