FEBRUARY 27

Soon to be the last day of the month

The month we are allowed to remember

The month we are to embrace all that we are

The month this country tries to heal our scars

But my brothers and sisters

You shall not forget who you will always be

Stand this proud always — February to February

“Know the Past, Shape the Future”

Decide to be proud 365 days a year

Your children become what you mirror

Teach them how to protect their unique wounds

That this month is noticed, but that we shall never lose focus
