with hope

with hope, pearls, (and chucks)

we are ready to work hard.

are we brave enough?

Instead of the terrible haikus that I’ve been writing here for most of the past year, I urge you to listen to Amanda Gorman recite her stunning poem, “The Hill We Climb” again (and again). How? Yamiche & PBS Newshour shared a clip. Want more of her words? CBS News gathered five of her moving performances. Also, PBS Newshour’s Jeffrey Brown interviewed Gorman earlier this week. I look forward to more from this strong, bold, and brave young woman. ;)
