Thanks to dxdukes.HubPages.com for the great ideas, though I have to say I think the songs are as good for educating my toddlers as my special needs child! Make sure to check out the site for some fun and easy craft ideas as well.

He had lots of love to share.

He spread kindness everywhere!

Song: Free At Last

Sung to: “This Old Man”

This young man had a dream; in his eye, he had a gleam

We must love each other to survive; Let us keep his dream alive.

He believed man was good; He had dreams of brotherhood.

We must love each other to survive; Let us keep his dream alive.

All join hands, let us sing; Let the bells of freedom ring.

We must love each other to survive; Let us keep his dream alive.

We can learn from the past; then we will all be “FREE AT LAST”

We must love each other to survive; Let us keep his dream alive.
