"We Are The Survivors" was written, composed and
performed in 1993, by Richard and Kim Wright. A gift to POMC
from the Wrights, the song is a message of hope and healing.

"WE ARE THE SURVIVORS"
There are those of us whose mothers have been taken from our arms,
There are those of us with children we could not keep safe from harm,
There are those of us who've lived to see our fathers lose their lives,
And each and every one of us survives.
(chorus)
We are the survivors,left behind to carry on.
We are the survivors, joined together we are strong.
We will speak out for our loved ones who were not given a choice.
We are the survivors, hear our voice.
Maybe some of us have brothers who were here but now they're gone,
You can ask about our sisters, because their memory is strong.
We are sons and we are daughters, we are husbands, we are wives,
And each and every one of us survives.
(repeat chorus...)
We are the survivors, left behind to carry on.
We are the survivors, joined together we are strong.
We will speak out for our loved ones who were not given a choice.
We are the survivors, hear our voice.
With a part of us that never heals, and a fear of the unknown,
There's a strength in knowing through it all, you're not alone.
(repeat chorus)
We are the survivors, left behind to carry on.
We are the survivors, joined together we are strong.
We will speak out for our loved ones who were not given a choice.
We are the survivors, hear our voice.
(repeat chorus...)
