After four years of chaos, I tuned in to the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris with a little glimpse of hope for the better. I thought that the words of the new President and Vice President would be inspirational. But it wasn’t their words that inspired me. It was the words of a young black poet, Amanda Gorman, that made me feel that we just might be okay. That night I went to sleep inspired and woke up with a vision of fabric with some of the words that she said in her poem… birthright, bold, purpose, love, legacy, fierce and justice. The words brought new inspiration at the start of last year. So today we are launching a sewing competition during the anniversary month of her recitation. It’s quite simple!
