It takes strength to be yourself and to build community. It takes strength to right wrongs and claim your voice. It takes strength to not know and ask for help. It takes strength to stand back and support others to find their strength. When does our strength rise? When do we witness the rising strength of others? How do we nurture the Rising Strength of all members of our community? Come tell your stories of Rising Strength in community with the Thunder and the Heartsparkle Players.
