Lullaby Flash Mob at Lights For Liberty: Humanitarian Vigil and Action- July 12th

On July 12th, Missoula, Montana will be joining hundreds of cities around the nation, as well as cities across Montana, to stand together and call for an end to child and family detention at the border. In partnership with Montanans for Immigrant Justice and Missoula Rises, Soft Landing Missoula invites you to join us in expressing our horror at the conditions in the detention center and the deaths of 7 children in America’s custody.

Where: St. Paul Lutheran Church- 202 Brooks St, Missoula, MT 59801

When: 7:30p

For more info on this local event and the motivation and details behind this national effort, please visit the Missoula FB event page as well as the Lights for Liberty website.

We are asking for your presence, but we are also asking for your PARTICIPATION! Along with select speakers, there will be a chance for audience participation to join our voices together in song. The song below was selected by members of Missoula’s immigrant community as a special lullaby sung by mothers to their children to comfort and soothe. There have been 7 children that have died as a result of conditions in these detention camps and we want to sing this song in their honor. Please join us and share with your communities, youth groups, etc.. so that we can send this song as far out into the universe as possible. Below is a youtube video and lyrics for you to learn ahead of time. Feel free to print and bring lyrics to the vigil. If you have a child or group of children that would like to stand at the front of the vigil and sing with a group (vs from the audience), please contact mary@softlandingmissoula.org. Thank you.

A la rorro nino

A la rorro niño
A lo rorro ya
Duérmete mi niño
Duérmete me ya.

Este niño lindo
Que nació de dia,
Quiere que lo lleven
A ver a su tia.

Este niño lindo
Que nació de noche
Quiere que lo lleven
A pasear en coche.

A la rorro niño
A lo rorro ya
Duérmete mi niño
Duérmete me ya.

Este niño lindo
Se quiere dormir,
Y el pícaro sueño
No quiere venir.

Este niño lindo
Que nació de noche
Quiere que lo lleven
A pasear en coche.
