This started as a letter to President Obama. It ended up being a plea to our whole nation. I am asking people to try to work together as a nation, to be civil to each other, to create a home that is not only healthy for us and our children, but which will re-claim our role in the world as the inspiration of people from all nations. I'm asking us to clean up our act here at home. The song started out just being a lyric...a bunch of thoughts, and became sort of country. I hope it catches on and becomes a new national song...inspiring us all to become the best people we can...the best Americans we can be.

Here at home here at home here at home here at home.
Thank you mis ter pre si dent for bring in the troops back home.
We got plen ty of bat tles to fight right here at home.
We've got got peo ple who hate us.
E ven tho they don e ven know us.
Here at home here at home.
So here we must stand to ge-ther.
To-ge-ther we must fight our own lit-tle de-vils right here at home.
Peo-ple hate who we are tho they don't e ven know us.
Peo-ple beat you sense-less be cause of how you were born.
Don't care how great this coun-try is… they're rea-dy to tear it a-part.
They hate you for your qui-et strength.
They don't un-der stand.
We share the wealth and hap-pi ness we've cre-at-ed here and now.
Here at home here at home here at home here at home.
Lis ten mis ter pre si dent, i'm tea-ching my child to share.
She is learn-ing the les-son well right here at home.
She's the pre-sent and we are the past.
Her fu-ture is com-in fast.
Here @ homE
here at home.
So please mis-ter pre-si-dent keep her safe.
For she is the hope we'll reach a new le-vel.
No mat-ter what co-lor we are and no mat-ter how we pray, we're all mem-bers of a big ol' fam-i ly
But car-ing must be taught to chil-dren… plen-ty of fam-i-lies fight.
We're bro-thers and sis- ters who fol-low the light
Learn to live to ge-ther 'sted of fight-ing in the night…
Here at home
Here at home
Here at home
Here at home
But be-fore we teach the rest of the world, we've got to get it right…
Here at home
Here at home
Here at home
Here at home
Here at home
Here at home
Here at home
