“A Rose Is Still a Rose” i’m sure you have heard that before. You may remember the 1998 single written by Lauryn Hill and recorded by the legendary singer Aretha Franklin. You may even remember the sentence “rose is a rose is a rose is a rose” that was written by Gertrude Stein in the 1913 poem “Sacred Emily.”
The phrase no matter where you read it, as Shakespeare stated: “a rose by any other name, is still a rose.”
THINGS ARE WHAT THEY SEEM!
It’s no longer time to be silent. This campaign is to raise awareness and empower both men and women that you are powerful and worthy. Outer beauty may attract, however, inner beauty captivates the soul.
As Franklin states, that in spite of everything and despite the woman’s “scorned roses and thorn crowns” the woman is “still a rose.”
