This story was written for a Stephen's Backpack event at Pleasant Hill Community School.   A reflection of Stephen and his wonderfully diverse family (Canadian, FN, Scottish, adopted, foster and biological) as well as our wonderful school I wanted to have a song to celebrate our unity in diversity.

C G

We come from many nations lead

F

(We come from different tribes) (echo)

C G F G

But we live together under one great sky harmony

C G

We share the same water lead

F

(And breathe the same air)

C

And learn from each other unison

F G

under one great sky (harmony)

C G F

We are, we are a family unison

C G F G

We live together under (one great sky harmony)

C G F

We are, we are a family unison

C G

You and I, unison

F

Waya hi (harmony)

We come together

(Bearing different gifts)

And help each other under this great sky harmony

Loved by Creator

(Nourished on the earth)

To walk gently under this great sky harmony
