    When the trumpet sounds
    and no birds grace the skies, we will stand.

    When the sun holds in the East
    casting long shadows across the land, then we will move.

    Once the sky bleeds truth
    and rains enlightenment to the ground, then we will march.

    Where souls past converge
    on freedom's dark financed foundation, we will build anew.

    Where blind impertinence
    blocks the way of righteousness, we will overcome.

    When gray storms blow
    and rail against the light, we will persevere.

    When freedom finally rings
    from sea to shining sea, we will lie down to rest.

    "When the trumpet sounds

    and no birds grace the skies, we will stand"

    powerful imagery, powerful feelings flow through me of the bugle call of "Taps"....ringing, echoing... and a sea of people united, standing...tall.... still standing...undaunted, ready to meet the new day, tomorrow...

    this is the vision that flowed through me...

    thank you

    a
