We are the banks that hold the rivers flow in check. We sit there quietly waiting. If called upon we will step forth with all our strength to protect all that we call ours. Sometimes, it takes the greatest courage to do nothing.
We are the ground in which life forces attach and flourish. We nourish and sustain. We strengthen roots and empower with wings. Sometimes, we have to get out of the way for them to find their way.
We are the sky of hope and possibility. We are the ones that build confidence. We encourage talent. We teach them to soar and reach for the stars. Sometimes, believing in someone else is the only lifeline they need.
We are the water that reflects the accomplishments of the years. We have absorbed the tears, ridden the rapids, and kept everyone afloat. Sometimes, we have to accept that our job is done.
