Dedication

Meet our friend Maria. We've known Maria and her family for 18 years. When we heard about her accident (in which the driver was killed, and Maria is not expected to walk again), we were stunned, and we wanted to help in some small way.

You may remember Maddie, the sweet little 7 year old from our "We Are the World" video, who was struggling for her life in the advanced stages of cancer. Thousands of you prayed for her, and her cancer is now in remission! Call it coincidence or call it a miracle -- we believe your prayers and the massive number of cards and letters she received helped her through. We'd like to do the same for Maria. If you feel moved to donate, here is the address:

Please send cards and letters to:

Post Office Box 386

We dedicate this video not only to Maria, but to all with spinal cord injuries. We hope and pray that doctors will find a cure for those paralyzed from tragic accidents. If you have someone you'd like to add to the prayer list, please put their name in the comment box below. Thank you, and God bless you all!!! :D

Prelude

Dani:
If you think about it, one moment can change your life forever
This is Maria
At the start of the year, Maria was a healthy and average teenager
She enjoyed cheerleading and helping out everyone she could
On February thirteenth, two thousand twelve, everything changed
Maria was involved in a serious car accident that left her paralyzed from the waist down
Maria's traded cheerleading and hanging out with friends for physical therapy and hospital visits
Her medical and therapy bills are growing
Maria's getting stronger everyday, but she needs our help
At the end of this video is the P.O. box where you can send anything to Maria directly
We encourage you to send donations to help make a difference
For more info, read the description below
Together, we can all help Maria become strong again

Lyrics

Dani with background vocals by Cimorelli:
You know my life is better
Standing here alone
You know I dream in color
And do the things I want

You think you got the best of me
Think you had enough the last laugh
Bet you think that everything good is gone
Think you left me broken down
Think that I'd come running back
Baby, you don't know me, 'cause you're dead wrong

Lisa with background vocals by Cimorelli:
What doesn't kill makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone

What doesn't kill makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

Christina with background vocals by Cimorelli:
You heard that I was starting over with someone new
They told you I was moving on and over you, yeah
You didn't think I'd come back
I'd come back swinging
You tried to break me, but you see

Lauren with background vocals by Cimorelli:
What doesn't kill makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone

What doesn't kill makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

Katherine with background vocals by Cimorelli:
Thanks to you I got a new thing started
Thanks to you I'm not broken-hearted
Thanks to you I'm finally thinking 'bout me
You know in the end the day you left was just my beginning
In the end

Amy with background vocals by Cimorelli:
What doesn't kill makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone

What doesn't kill makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

What doesn't kill makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

Lisa:
When I'm alone

Lisa with background vocals by Cimorelli:
What doesn't kill makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone

What doesn't kill makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

Christina:
I'm not alone
