 “We Raise Everests”(by Joe DiMino)

We raise Everests
Where need-be no altitude
Of climbs,
Our Golden Rules
Lines in the sand
If only the bending
More toward compassion
And not avoidance

I have always thought
Lead by example
And not by edict or mandate,
The powers of the state:
Do not as we do
But as we say—
A parent germinating
