"... We were athletes.
We learned the value of thick skin, the value of determination.
I look at the women ADT has churned out,
and we're a breed tough to faze.
We're a breed of high achievers, Dean's list members, sorority officers,
stewards of universities, arts supporters, adventurers, and mothers.
Don't tell a ballerina "no," for she knows in her heart
that she can do any role placed upon her.
After all, it's the lesson she learned at the barre
under a loving teacher's instruction."
