Oh Happy Day!

Happy Inauguration Day! I feel so positive.
The poem was incredible. It will be published in February in an $8 edition. I am hoping for a larger collection of Elizabeth Alexander's poetry including that beautiful poem.
I hope for a better future for all of our children in schools operating without enough resources to do their best. And I hope for a better future for everyone in which our health, our education, our elder years, our working years, are addressed with dignity and care.
I think that's not an unreasonable hope, though I think it will take quite some time at the beginning of this paradigm shift.

I liked the poem too and really want to read it.
I'm looking forward to hearing what the edition looks like when it comes out in Feb. I hope that you will do an update.
