Israel : "I'll remind you to fly"

Greetings! We are extremely excited to represent Israel as it participates in Schoolovision for the first time. To honor the occasion, we have written an original song inspired by Ilan Ramon, the first Israeli astronaut. Even when problems with schoolwork and friends get you down, follow your dreams and believe in yourself. Like the boy in the video, you will rise above your challenges. That's the message that Ilan left us with. We hope that this message inspires you as well.
‪Our thanks to Schoolovision and best wishes to all the participants.‬
‪ ‬
‪"When doubts and fear begin to grow‬ ‪ ‬
‪And crowd the place where dreams should go‬ ‪ ‬
‪Dream on, believe, and you'll go far ‬ ‪ ‬
‪Reach always for that fleeting star. ‬ ‪ ‬

‪Birds and heroes can soar ‬ ‪ ‬
‪Always striving, seeking more ‬
Find the vision, find the spark‬"

What an amazing first entry from Israel!

It's so nice to listen your song and music...

It's difficult to express what I felt when I listened it.

It's an outstanding song and sincerely it's nice to listen someone saying to follow our dreams and BELIEVE!

I saws several shining stars on your video.
Now I feel like an astronaut who wants to visit these stars and I believe one day I'll meet you in person.

Good luck from Portugal
Lots of hugs, Carla

When I learned that your school is just at the outskirts of my city's twin city Ramat Gan I was already totally euphoric.

And after having watched your video in awe a number of times I am thoroughly happy that we have found you as our new Schoolovision partners.

This is a breathtaking entry with great music, an important message and wonderful graphics.
All the best of luck for the voting!

The song and video were beautiful and touching. Ilan Ramon z"l, I am certain, would have been proud that his legacy was remembered in this inspirational video. Kudos to English teacher, Betty Bailey and all those who worked on this video. May you "soar" to great heights.

This song was one of my favourites!!!
When I listened to your song (several times...) I feel a lot of emotions: I'm happy, I'm sad, I'm in the clouds...I dream a lot!
You all make me believe that our children are our best inheritance and that we must do everything to make them happy, belive in love and truth!
And yes, of course, you all remind me and everyone could fly!...

It was a special tribute to your astronaut z"l Ilan Ramon!
I believe he is very proud of your outstanding song and video wherever he is!
