On Music for Schools: Every school door is open

Let's open our eyes, and open our ears,

Or we're not gonna make it

Through another year.

People of all Faiths and nationalities,

From land to land, and sea to sea...

So let us everyone teach our

Children of Unity.

To love everyone with equality.

La la la, la la la, la la la la la la,

La la la, la la la, la la la la la la,

La la la la la la,

La la la la la la.

-The Equality song

There is a story here about opening doors to diverse expression. You can read the whole story on the site. -gw
Veda spent the next year gathering sheet music, making a CD of some Baha’i songs and getting permission for artists to use their music.
“Every door has opened,” she said, “it’s meant to be.”
All 55 schools in her district now have the book, and the Mosavi family has been sending it to any school district that requests it, including schools outside of California.
Jasmine, who is now in the fifth grade, said the year-long project taught her an important lesson.
“I learned that I should not feel left out,” she said. “It doesn’t matter if you celebrate Christmas or not, we’re all the same inside. We shouldn't feel separated by the way we worship. I wanted my teachers to know that I am a Baha'i and to let them know that we believe in the unity of all religions." ...
Those interested in the booklet can e-mail Jasmine and her mom at: musicfortheschools "at" (The booklet includes sheet music and a CD compilation for "Blessed is the Spot"; "O God, Educate these children"; "Listen"; and "The Equality Song")
