(I hope these folks don't mind me using this photo) but I found this one to be particularly pertinent to the conversation. Don't think one image can truly symbolize what being an American really is, it's more complex than that, it's not so black and white. Not as simple as those boxes they got you checking off on the SAT's. White. Black. Hispanic. Asian. Native American. Other. Which one am I? I always chose other cause who is 100% any of those things anyway. Besides.. that's just one thing about me. Whys that' the only thing that matters. This conversation of what's American got shades. it's got colors, subjects and nouns villains and heros and a whole lotta sides to every story told. It's got courage and pride speaks of tradition, customary celebrations, and through all the narrative you can feel the stakes are almost always exceeding the layback norm. The gravity. The passion. The pride. It's intense. But what makes this story so rich so complex however is that its ever changing. The heros change and so do the antagonists. Even the vocabulary is constantly evolving like the emotions it's used to describe. But the one thing that's as constant as change is that triumph comes only thru unity. And no it isn't love that always saves the day unfortunately, but it's certainly understanding, inclusion, and empathy that does. Individually we are special but together we can change the world. we HAVE changed the world time and time again because of our diversity and because we were able to celebrate and apply our differences. When I look at this image I see young men and women that are sacrificing their life to give us an opportunity to live out ours. They give us all a chance to write our stories. How are we saying thank you? How are we NOT taking it for granted? When are we all going to realize a simple truth.. life is just so much better in color. Let's be better, all together. let's all pick up our pens and through our actions help write the type of story we can be proud to share with generations to come. #unitedwestand #onelove

Thank you to #sytycd for having me. It was truly an honor to be able to contribute to a project I've been such a fan of for so long. Very lucky to have worked with these awesomely talented wonderful human beings. Paul for being an all around stud. Sydney for being the long-legged vixen baddy sweetheart that she is. And Miss Cherry for assistant me in giving them a fun number to jam to. Love and appreciate you all very much it was a blast. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
