Supporting Families

We will not be turned around or interrupted by intimidation
Because we know our inaction and inertia
will be the inheritance of the next generation.
Our blunders become their burdens
But one thing is certain:
If we merge mercy with might and might with right,
Then love becomes our legacy
And change our children’s birthright.

– Amanda Gorman, from The Hill We Climb
