Be a man with the dirt of labor on your hands, not the blood of those in bondage. Be a woman of strength, not of servitude. Bring a spark of hope to the future, leave the ashes of despair in the past. Stand tall, give those who cower an example. Be filled with joy, let sorrow hunger in the belly. Lead when compelled, follow the lead when your intuition compels. And always listen to your heart as it alone speaks for the soul.

C.L. Harmon
