Rosa sat

You have to know a little about the history of the equal rights movement for this little song to make sense, but how cool is it? Via Eugene Chan (aka @eugevon) on Twitter, whose 6 year old attends the school.

Can you not just picture that wonderfully enthusiastic teacher singing in a little Baptist church come Sunday?

Rosa sat so that Martin could walk
Martin walked so that Barack could run
Barack ran
He ran and he won
So that all God's children could fly!
Later edit - courtesy of Eugene again. Here's the original. I think I like the kiddies' version better. No offence.
