What will your verse be?

Dead Poets Society, is an American film set in Vermont,1959 where English teacher, John Keating, played by the late Robin Williams, inspires his students through his teaching of poetry, at this fictional, elite, boarding-school.

In one scene, Keating talks to his students about the meaning of life. Keating quotes from Walt Whitman’s poem, Oh Me Oh Life, as follows:

“Oh life! of the questions of these recurring, Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish. What good amid these, O me, O life?

Answer: That you are here—that life exists and identity,

That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

The poem explains that life is like a play; everyone who has ever lived gets to contribute a verse. Keating then asks the students: “What will your verse be?” The verse that you contribute to the play of life is your LEGACY.

At Spirit of Discovery Park, our LEGACY mirrors our MISSION: to provide a fully accessible amusement park for EVERY body. Where ALL abilities can create memories together. A place EVERY body can gather and play without restriction or stereotype or judgement. A place to feel the wind on your face and hear the sound of pure laughter fill the air. That's our MISSION, our LEGACY.

WHAT WILL YOUR LEGACY BE? Consider one of diversity, equality, and inclusion. Your gift will help us continue to deliver programs that educate, entertain, and engage EVERY body!
