This past weekend, hundreds of thousands of people gathered in the nation’s capital, and across the country and world, for a very important reason: To get the attention of lawmakers and communicate how dire it is for changes to be made to the current gun-control laws.

March for Our Lives—a demonstration organized by survivors of the February 15 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, which claimed 17 lives—aimed to start a revolution. And with fiery, passionate teenagers like Emma González—who took the stage for 6 minutes and 20 seconds (4 of which were in pure silence), the exact amount of time it took the Parkland shooter to carry out his attack—leading the charge for change, it appears America is in good, socially active hands that refuse to take no for an answer.

While there were many memorable moments from the worldwide demonstrations, one in particular that you can use as inspiration every day is the empowering, original anthem two Stoneman Douglas students, Sawyer Garrity and Andrea Peña, wrote in the wake of the tragedy. No matter what you have going on in your life right now, listening to the lyrics from “Shine” can double as an affirmation that, yes, you can totally make a difference. And download it soon, as proceeds will reportedly benefit the victims of trauma via arts-related initiatives.

Listen to the inspiring and empowering performance of “Shine” below.
