We rise again in the grass. In the flowers. In songs. – grandmother and World War II survivor in the novel All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.
“No sun outlasts its sunset, but will rise again, and bring the dawn.” – Maya Angelou in a tribute to Nelson Mandela after his death in 2013
We rise again in the faces
of our children
We rise again in the voices of our song
We rise again in the waves out on the ocean
And then we rise again.
– chorus of We Rise Again by Leon Dubinsky, sung by the choir at the child dedication church service of my grandson in 2012
