Tonight I have decided.
Tonight our journey TOGETHER has truly begun.
I speak of change
I speak of courage
I ask YOU to risk it all
All the while I sit, comfortable in my home
Comfortable in my future.
So tonight I decide to risk it all
My dreams
My future
My security.
Who am I if I do not put my actions where my words are?
I would be a hypocrite.
I AM NO HYPOCRITE.
I have many faults and I have fallen short many times
But not now…..not tonight.
Tonight I am stepping out….
Off the cliff my foot dangles
Not knowing where it will fall
But confident it will land
Exactly where it was meant to be.
And tonight
I’m asking for you to take that same step
In solidarity.
Your future,
My future,
OUR future
Will be dependent on one another.
I pledge to fight.
I pledge to never give in.
I pledge to never give up.
But I can only do this if you are here with me.
UNITED WE STAND
The advocate and the educator.
UNITED OUR CHILDREN WILL WIN.
