We will rise from the sun-baked South. We will rebuild, reconcile, and recover, in every known nook of our nation, in every corner called our country, our people diverse and beautiful, will emerge battered and beautiful.
Let's talk power and passion. The new year brought a couple of things, and one of the most notable thus far is Amanda Gorman's introduction to some and reminder to others. She is pure inspiration and a constant reminder of black excellence. Witnessing her powerful poem's recitation, The Hill We Climb, was a creative turning point at the inauguration. The passion, the rawness, and the connection were undeniable. I may have 'met her' just recently, but I am sure a fan for life of her wisdom, grace, and poise.
