Greatest Love of All

When I was young, and this song first came out, I couldn't grasp it quite. It was a beautiful song, but I never really understood it... what it meant...

But the song replayed in my mind one day as I was trekking in the mountains towards the end of the Journey... As I looked at the youths in EA with love and joy at their growth and new-found self-belief and confidence...

I finally understood how important it was to grow children and build them up from inside. From there, they can stand strong and become the beautiful tall strong trees God always meant them to be.

Greatest Love of All
by Whitney Houston

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride
To make it easier
Let the children's laughter
Remind us how we used to be

Everybody's searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone to fulfil that need
A lonely place to be
And so I learned to depend on me

I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone's shadow
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I'll have lived as I believed
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity

Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
Learning to love yourself
Is the greatest love of all
