cleveland

A great leader is courageous yet filled with compassion, strong yet willing to yield, driven by wisdom and committed to the greater good. A person of the people, willing to sacrifice for others.

And in the end, we win

because love always wins.

This

but may the gentle spirits – rest in peace.

I don’t really have a helmet, but I can sure make us some signs

for next time.
