As requested by many, here is text of the rap performed by Horizons grad Danny Ramalho at last November’s fall event.
He brought down the house!!
This program shaped my life and boy, what an impact
And if you take a closer look, you’ll see the magnitude
So I’m here tonight to come express this gratitude
We thank you for the chances and opportunities
Helping to spread this knowledge through our communities
You gave my people dreams, and let us dream far
(Sigh) If only I could spend another summer at Greens Farms
If had to choose, I’d be eight again
Back there shooting hoops, and out there making friends
I miss all my teachers who we declare the best
And I miss clapping my hands to the spirit check
Ever wonder why Horizons minds never undermine?
It’s ‘cause we flipped the summer slide, turned it to a summer climb
You all gave me a chance, so I forever remain true
And so I speak for all us students, when I say THANK YOU
