Not Today

Harmony for Change is taking a stand against bullying.

The statistics on bullying are unfortunately growing at high speed. Alarming numbers show that in the USA alone, 160,000 students stay home from school every day for the fear of being bullied. Worldwide numbers on bullying are also climbing rapidly. Bullying can be physical, verbal, sexual, or prejudicial. It can also take place online as cyber bullying or in a relationship. This threat has become the most common form of violence in schools and playgrounds. More than 14% of students in high school have thought about suicide and 7% has actually attempted it, unfortunately succeeding in some cases. This has to stop, and it is up to each and every one of us who stand against bullying to create awareness and to teach younger generations the true meaning of respect, love and kindness towards every human being. No one has the right to make you feel less because "you are loved and you are special" and unique in your own way. We all have a purpose in this world. We’re all meant to be here. No matter who you are, you are here to shine! So raise your voice against bullying! And if you or anyone you know is a victim of bullying, stand together against the threat and say "NOT TODAY!"

Close Lyrics

Not Today

So you came back home from school
Now you wish the clock stops ticking
One more day that wasn't cool
One more day that left you grieving

They called you names, they broke your heart
They left you grounded and in shame
Don't give up, it's not the end
I'll show you how to win this game

You are loved and you are special
They are just plain and insecure
You are driven by potential
and they can't handle the light in you

Going on for far too long
Now it's time to draw the line
You are unique and you are strong
And I know that you will shine

Without delay expose them all
Be fearless, cry out their names
They deserve to take the fall
'cause they are the ones to blame

Yes, you are loved and you are special
They are just plain and insecure
You are driven by potential
and they can't handle the light in you

There is nothing wrong with who you are
No matter what they do or say
You might feel like giving up
But NOT TODAY!

Just raise your voice
You have a choice
To make it stop
To reach the top

'Cause you are loved and you are special
They are just plain and insecure
You are driven by potential
And they can't handle the light in you

There is nothing wrong with who you are
No matter what they do or say
You might feel like giving up
But NOT TODAY!
