From Rupi Kaur : #Women are so graceful. So regal. We have the universe inside of us. The power of our bodies is a miracle. I love how capable we are of letting ourselves feel so much...that takes strength. Just being a woman, calling myself woman, makes me feel like a queen. I want women to realize power is theirs to take. They must reach out and swallow it. Snatch it. Claim it. It will never be given to us. You must love yourself and appreciate the work of art that you are.
Found on Pinterest search engine. Wendell Berry, 2012, Applegate. This quote is simple yet it helps remind us that we all stand on the earth and we all benefit from its presence. It can be used as a direct quote in my speech, used to enforce the idea that the task of caring for the planet is the responsibility of each and every human being.
