"This space allows all Americans to understand where we came from, how we got here, and how we can move forward. We are better today because of all the heroes in American History, and it is a blessing to be able to pay homage to our past in order to inspire us all for the better. As we strive to honor our rich heritage and history, I am one of I'm sure many who will continue to strive to make a difference to help heal the past and build a brighter future. So thank you to my heroes for being proud, powerful, and resilient. We honor you today and everyday."- Simone Manuel

Yes! Simone, thank you for honoring those who came before you and being an inspiration to the next generation of trailblazers.
