Who am I?
This simple question is at the foundation of the identity movement, and while our focus is on individuals and couples, we have had to answer a related question as an organization and a community, “Who are we?”
Neglecting that question would leave open the possibility that others would define us, creating an identity for us based on their projections and not of our choosing. So, we have spent much of 2019 answering that question: imagining programs, traditions, names and symbols that define us as we want to be known.
Today we are unveiling the symbolic identity by which we want to be recognized in the world.
In the torch, we see a tool that holds the light we carry as we search for ourselves in our history. At the same time, it illuminates the pathway to new identities that we create for ourselves.
In addition to the flame that lights the way, our flame represents the uniqueness of each and every identity that has or ever will live upon this earth. Just as there are no two fingerprints alike, each of us discovers and creates our own one of a kind identity.
Finally, as the font implies going from small to bold type, our journey in search and creation of identity may start from a place of weakness and uncertainty but will grow strong with time and effort.
