A nice set of thoughts here from Pano Kroko to inspire an opening ceremony or other moment of appreciation
Your body is made of the same elements that stars are built from.
Three quarters of you is the same kind of water that beats rocks to rubble, wears stones away.
Your DNA translates into the same twenty amino acids that all genes code for.
When you look in the mirror and feel weak, remember, the oxygen rich air you breathe-in fuels fires capable of destroying everything they touch.
On the days you feel ugly, remember — diamonds are only carbon.
You are so much more — You walk a path of Purpose.
You are a being scattered with stardust and gossamer beams of opal moonlight and clear running streams.
You are the wind in the branches that whisper
You are the voice of the trees
You are the light and the wild shadows that dance together…
You are the thread of Life.
