“There is always light.
Only if we are brave enough to see it.
There is always light.
Only if we are brave enough to be it.”
Amanda Gorman

“We've learned that quiet isn't always peace.”
Amanda Gorman, Call Us What We Carry

“When day comes, we step out of the shade of flame and unafraid.
The new dawn balloons as we free it.
For there is always light, if only we’re brave enough to see it.
If only we’re brave enough to be it.”
Amanda Gorman, The Hill We Climb: An Inaugural Poem for the Country
