“I am a Firefly, I am bright and I shine; throughout my years in school, many friends I will find.
Everyone is special and different in their own way; That’s why I want to make a pledge on this very day.
Today I want to share what I know to be true; That each and every child has intelligence and value.
Every day is different, some feel great and some feel bad; This is real, it is normal, and I will not make anyone feel sad.
If I ever do bring sadness with my actions or my voice; Please forgive me, and I will try my best next time to make a better choice.
Sometimes we’re happy, sometimes we’re not and that is perfectly okay; Now that I’m aware, I will try to brighten someone’s day.”
