The Aspirants

Once upon a time,
we dreamed of a peaceful existence.
Now, we not only dream,
but add the ingredients
of enlightenment, struggle,
determination, vision, sacrifice
and perseverance.

written by Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith/Fountainhead® Tanz Théâtre
inspired by "...What is the plan?..." - Oscar Brown Jr.

Die Aspiranten

Einst träumten wir
von einem friedlichen Leben.
Heute träumen wir nicht nur,
sondern fügen die Zutaten
Aufklärung, Kampf, Entschlossenheit,
Vision, Opferbereitschaft
und Beharrlichkeit hinzu.

Text von Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith/Fountainhead® Tanz Théâtre
