I am human.

I am not a number.

I am not a race or a nationality.

I am not a religion.

I am not a gender,

An orientation,

A class,

Or a career.

I am not left or right,

Neither a militant nor a pacifist.

I am greater than all of these things.

I was the dust of stars before humanity was a wisp in time.

I am a part of everything that came before me and

I will be a part of everything that follows my existence.

I am a piece of the universe.

I matter.

I am human.
