Yesterday, I received an email from the Academy of American Poets. Their message:
We explicitly denounce state-sanctioned violence, white supremacy, and the racist belief systems that have been with us throughout our nation’s history. Black Lives Matter.
They went on to promote the importance of poetry and the power of language in the journey forward. It’s heartening to see so many organizations and companies taking a stand. Hopefully, this is just the beginning of taking action to eradicate racism in our society.
What are you grateful for today?
