Sandys, Washington Post: Kelia Anne, New York Times]Did you see Amanda Gorman, 22, the youngest inaugural poet in U.S. history, read her exquisite poem, “The Hill We Climb," at the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris? The poem includes these lines: "When day comes, we ask ourselves:/ Where can we find light/ In this never-ending shade?/ The loss we carry, a sea we must wade." Of the poem, she told the New York Times, “There is space for grief and horror and hope and unity, and I also hope that there is a breath for joy in the poem, because I do think we have a lot to celebrate at this inauguration.” Read the NYT story. If you are inspired, write a few lines to commemorate this inauguration and this time.
