We are all G.E.M.S. (inspired by Pegine Echevarria’s speech at the 2011 Upstate Latino Summit)

We have to lead

we are a gem

we have to realize

that we are valuable

that as individuals

we are each

a prize

we have to see the positives

we have to


our positive motives

are higher

than the skies.

If we let others

put us down

we have to


if someone blocks

our positive vision

we have to

open up our eyes

no one else

can think for us

no matter how hard

he or she tries.

As leaders

we must share

we must motivate,

those around us

we must educate,

blocks and walls

we must negate,

our own value

we must dictate,

our own attitude

we must elevate,

no one else can substitute

but they can HELP

fill our plate,

we must therefore extend our hand

and associate


WE advance,

lift up,
