I am not an amazing person.
But I do believe one person is capable of amazing things.
I am not better than anyone.
But I do want to be better than I was yesterday.
I am not always nice, inspiring, or friendly.
But I do believe the more I try to be, the easier it gets.
I do not care more than others do.
But I do think accomplishing a little, sure beats wishing for a lot.
I refuse to concentrate on despair, how we ignore what we can’t see.
But I know by standing up, my visibility will give a voice to those in the shadows.
I am not an army of millions with expensive gear and guns to fight.
But I am a soldier of service, with water…more powerful than weapons.
This battle is not over.
