The Flag of Democracy

We’ll cry tears of salt and we will mourn
Today for sure and for the days to come,

The fog of violence still hanging in the air,
The blood of death and barbarous injuries
Carved as a black and white etching
in our minds forever

But tomorrow we will rise again,

Because we are humans,
People with feelings of compassion,
Because we care
and our hearts are full of love,

Strengthened by our charity,
Standing tall because of our humanity,
We will prevail,

Together with our brothers and sisters
In the whole world,
We are legion in our battle
To keep the flag of democracy blowing,

Even when it storms today.
