One South Carolina
The creed of our great state is Dum Spiro Spero--While I breathe I hope. Today is a day that millions have hoped for and our collective joy is representative of what South Carolinians and all people of good will can accomplish when we come together.
Now as we breathe the clear air as One South Carolina my hope is that this new sense of promise and purpose will continue to allow us to move our state forward together. God Bless Columbia, God Bless South Carolina & God Bless the United States of America.
Steve Benjamin, Mayor
City of Columbia, South Carolina
