We wear purple
It marks us. The purple.
Sometimes like a black eye.
It’s a badge.
Of Courage Strength, Distinction and Grace
We may not always feel strong;
But at those times,
Your Sisters will guard your back.
We are in sync.
In water and out.
We are strong.
In the boat and on land.
We are all resilient women.
Spring has brought us together again.
The essence of our souls is tied together.
We are divine, luminous, exceptional women.
Sisters by name, family by choice.
-Sue Coons, River Sister
