“…We will rebuild, reconcile and recover 
and every known nook of our nation and 
every corner called our country, 
our people diverse and beautiful will emerge, 
battered and beautiful 
When day comes we step out of the shade, 
aflame and unafraid 
The new dawn blooms as we free it 
For there is always light, 
if only we’re brave enough to see it…” 
― Amanda Gorman “The Hill We Climb”
