We live as exist as three things at once. The first is a seed. A seed is planted within every person we come across. They are Pink Roses set to grow in time. The essence of who we linger in the seeds we plant in people. The seeds are gestures of kindness, words, our legacy, or the memories of our presence.
We become the soil for these seeds each day. We are the space where love can grow in a present, and future tense. The love we give roams our past and memories.
THE WATER & LIGHT
The essence of these powerful women, men, children, and elders water us and the love we house helping these pink roses grow from us. We are fluid souls existing in form.
THE PINK ROSE
We are the Pink Roses. That blossom every day. The essence of these cancer survivors fighters advocates and warriors blossom in our presence whether it's in our movement, thoughts, actions, words plans or past. The Roses blossoms of the awardee’s today and in the past lives with us.
