Our strongest and truest lasting values come from within.
There is no likelihood of these ever being destroyed as they are a permanent part of our nature.
What we are learning about now, is our increasingly intense ability to identify and express them.
We are discovering our real worth, and we are demanding to see it in our leaders.
We are discovering our power, from within, and learning to exercise it without.
It is taking many forms, and for so many of us, this is the first time we have awakened from our sense of hopelessness.
It is finally so bad, that a mighty force is arising.
Make no mistake, this is of historic proportions.
What we know to be good and true, is that each of us is significant.
We raise our children with that view.
We suffer when it is taken from us in schools, in jobs, in neighborhoods, in laws.
It is so easy to respect every one of us.
We are each intelligent, with a sense of humor.
We love our families, and we all want to take care of them.
The many movements and actions which are beginning to sweep our country are a recognition of our wonderful worth.
We are acting to create the lasting values we all want to see throughout our country.
