I stand in solidarity with the prisoners of Guantanamo
Not because of their innocence or guilt, but because of their humanity

I stand in solidarity with the prisoners of Guantanamo
Not because I agree with their causes, whatever they may be, but because of my humanity

I stand in solidarity with the prisoners of Guantanamo
Because I believe in the values and ethics my forebears passed down to me

I stand in solidarity with the prisoners of Guantanamo
Because of the long history of struggle, both political and religious, for basic human rights

I stand in solidarity with the prisoners of Guantanamo
Because the unjust and inhumane treatment of any man or woman, diminishes me

I stand in solidarity with the prisoners of Guantanamo
Because the unjust and inhumane treatment of any man or woman, diminishes my country

I stand in solidarity with the prisoners of Guantanamo
Because the incarceration of any human being without legal recourse is plain wrong

I stand in solidarity with the prisoners of Guantanamo
Because I was raised by my parents, teachers, and preachers, to know better

I stand in solidarity with the prisoners of Guantanamo
Because my heart aches for their and the suffering of their families

I stand in solidarity with the prisoners of Guantanamo
Because I fear for the effects their treatment will have on the future of Democracy

I stand in solidarity with the prisoners of Guantanamo
Because I fear for the future of the rule of law and what this could mean to my descendents

I stand in solidarity with the prisoners of Guantanamo
Not because of their innocence or guilt, but because of their humanity
