Are we a community?
Are we a race, are we a minority?
Sure,it doesn’t matter,
When our talent speaks for us,
When our identity is in our hands.
Having numbers is not diversity,
It’s about embracing the diversity,
Celebrating people with people,
Planting seeds of inclusion,
With a vision to reinvent and rise.
Each one of us matters,
In the figures of goal and success,
We are a repository of uniqueness.
Our history reveals for us,
Our Laurels up and high.
Soaring high up above,
With a hand to lend,a heart to give,
A deed in kind, a word of praise.
Our future is in our present,
Our present in our actions.
