An Ode to Changemakers Everywhere

Stand tall
Shoulders erect
Eyes directed straight ahead
Working today for brighter tomorrows.

Remember from where you have come
Be delighted about where you are going
Be proud to be apart of something bigger than you.

Know that we each make up the whole
Listen to voices from the past
Echoing your fame and fortune of tomorrow
Speaking of young men and young women fighting for justice
Speaking of creative minds and gifted hands
Struggling to be free.

Stay open
Stay curious
You are the future
We are the future.
