This poem, “The Hill We Climb” by 22 year-old poet laureate Amanda Gorman, written for today’s inauguration of the 46th President of the United States, Joseph R. Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, is an equally beautiful, eloquent, sobering and yet hopeful statement. It’s the one the world needs. It’s the one America needs. It had me in tears and, if you’ve heard it, probably you too.
Thank you Amanda.
