This one is for all those who:

Don’t seek permission

And live authentically

Who blaze paths wide enough for others to stand beside them

And deep enough for generations to follow behind them

Who take the cuts and bruises that come with shattering glass ceilings

So others may never know a ceiling again

Who intentionally educate themselves

And advocate for the marginalized or silenced

Who believe in the power of individual impact

But also the undeniable force of a collective

Who move culture forward

And credit others who do the same

Who reject the status quo

In order to build a more equitable society

Who offer their shoulders to stand on

So that others may rise

We see each other

We lift each other

We respect each other

We celebrate each other

We better each other

Pairs well with:
