"With ramps providing access to all, this is a monument prototype with monumental reach towards true acceptance of all dynamics of humankind. I'm 'me' and I can stand tall, share everyone's perspective, raised on a pillar of worth, even though I use a wheelchair to get around!" Today we're sharing Steven Sebastianelli's reaction to Mel Chin's prototype monument in City Hall Courtyard. "The current @MuralArts' @MonumentLab display at City Hall is fully inclusive! I hope to see more of this forward mindset in the future! Check it out and help make this amazing conceptual design further explored and developed, and a permanent part of Philadelphia! It's time to share perspectives and self-pride, not shame and annex diversity!" Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Steven! #MonumentLab

"I'm a firm believer that everyone you meet has something they can teach you. Iron sharpens iron. Taking this into my experience driving with @lyft has been interesting. Sometimes I'll ask people deep questions totally out of the blue. You never know who you may bump into on this earth. I have met some amazing people, that have changed my life in profound ways, via chance encounters. I was introduced to a now mentor of mine in a @Lyft just a few months ago. This individual has opened some doors for me in the past few weeks that honestly astound me. I appreciate you J! We, as ONE human race, share this beautiful space. I started my company @iNi.RISE based on these beliefs. I believe that we are truly ALL - Made to Manifest - Peace & Blessings. If your programming gets too hectic, just write your own. What a time to be a live! Love thrives - it's infinite, it's intricate, it is unlimited." - Michael McGovern

"Music to me has always been a universal language. Having the gift to create it has always given me the ability to relate and connect with people on a personal level. There is no better feeling than using your personal experiences to help someone get through trying times in their lives. Working for @Lyft allows me to pursue that passion while being one of the lead singers at @ReddPandaMusic." - @Marc_P2

"It's always interesting to hear my @Lyft passengers' reactions when I tell them that I'm primarily an opera singer; it's definitely not what people expect. I often find that most people only understand opera as far as the stereotype of the proverbial "fat lady" in a viking hat screaming her brains out, but my first exposure to opera when I was younger surprised me with how approachable and, actually, how funny it was (not all opera is so serious and tragic, though most of my personal favorites are). Opera is a medium that tells stories in a way that nothing else can. Take the way a song can pull emotions right out of your chest, and combine that with the way a drama or story can steal away your reality for awhile, then turn it all up to 11 with the raw, visceral power or the fragile vunerability of an unassisted (i.e. not amplified) human voice soaring above a full orchestra out to every last seat in the house. Honestly that doesn't even do it justice; it's really something you have to experience for yourself. I'm so proud to be a part of @operaphila where we're doing so many exciting things and making Philadelphia an important part of the opera world. So whether you want something classic and timeless, something brand new and relevant, or something in between, there's an opera for everyone." - @theraeth
