Stand there.
Don’t move a muscle.
Just take this in.
Slow down, and breathe.

You know,
We never laugh enough.
We never smile enough.
We never live enough.
Let’s change that.

This moment is a revolution.

Think about the good things.
Block out all the bad.
Stand here with me,
And remember who you are.

Deny them the right to control you.
Raise your fists in the air,
And remember you have victory in that heart of yours.

Today, we start the change.
Today, we live for ourselves.
Today… we say no to the pain.

Here is our movement.
Here is our revolution.
