We all breathe the same air and bleed red… Tearing down obstacles and rebuilding opportunities TOGETHER STRONG When we stand together we are never alone Deep inside our hearts we are the same Though difference remain Casting all our fear aside we stand unified TOGETHER STRONG Trailblazers, Peacemakers That’s what we are Seed Sowers, Go Givers Stand up with pride TOGETHER STRONG Greatness is apprehended by creative ideas Developed through evolution of one’s self Forward thinking in motion Will keep us from tripping over our past Ideas without action are stagnant thoughts that repel GREATNESS Imagination turned reality only comes to those who plant, water and nourish SEEDS of GREATNESS A seed without water will die An idea without development will remain dormant Every second is a new opportunity to blaze a trail of greatness for others to lead TOGETHER STRONG On this Thursday, December 5th, 2013 – PROCLAIMED Bringing Everyone Together Day
