Nicole Mulligan, of the Pride Centre of Edmonton, submitted this poem to the Society for Safe and Caring Schools & Communities, to share in her personal journey and open up conversations about the value of the support of individuals and community working together to create safe, caring and inclusive spaces for all young people.
Once and Now
It made me want to lie down in the road
This life of mine
I know I know I can stand upon this land
With the grace of your hand.
