And we will lift up our voices to be heard

I have been awakened.

I am a voice.

My daughters are voices.

We are the blood and bones of this land.

We are outspoken proponents of the stars for we are their light.

We are stardust.

We belong.

We, too, can be held in this country’s embrace.

We are daughters of the stars.
