Glory is about the praise, the honor and the distinction given to you for the work you do. From people you work with, people you admire, people you trust.

Silent Sophie has yet to say a word. Her parents are worried. After a few weeks of working with her, Sophie starts to communicate. Humming. Casually plinking the keys of the piano in your office.
