“If you think these women are too soft to face the world at hand.

Then you’ve never known the power of love And you fail to understand.

We pray for a thousand grandmothers and women who care

for the children and grandchildren at our borders and children everywhere.

Will you please come volunteer? Will you bring your power here?”
