Amanda Gorman. Am I right?

If there was a spotlight to steal––and there really wasn’t given that it was a day shared by the entire nation––it was stolen by Amanda Gorman. The tradition of a poet laureate delivering an inaugural speech is longstanding. And yet, some years are exceptional. This was one of those years. If you didn’t get a chance to watch, you should read it or listen to it ASAP. If you did watch it, you should read it against. It is the exceptional bit of American literature already –– history hot off the presses!
