Welcome to a New Year! It feels like we have already lived three months of it with all the events that unfolded in the past few weeks.
I certainly have been moved by many of them, but none more that the beautiful presence of the first National Youth Poet Laureate, Amanda Gorman’s recitation of her work, “The Hill We Climb” at the inauguration.
If you missed it, I encourage you to find a recording of it, to experience it as Amanda would want it to be heard. Here is a link to the complete poem. Words from a 23-year old sage, who overcame a childhood speech impediment and an auditory processing disorder. Perhaps one word for 2021 is INSPIRING?
