“You never really know the impact that your life has on the world until you hear about things like this.”
At Russell Sage College, a women’s college in Troy, New York, students often have the opportunity to purchase and engrave a brick which will become a physical part of the campus for years to come.
According to the school's website, bricks can showcase “names, memorable dates, class years, small graphics and more.”
Thanks to the internet, one brick in particular has taken on a life of its own. Its message is simple and direct: “Long live the lesbians!”
“I go to a women’s college,” the caption of the photo reads. The image was taken and posted to Tumblr by a former student.
“We have a walkway where bricks can be purchased by alumnae. Most just say names or class years/mascots. But this one. This one is special. It speaks to me.”
