Like millions of others around the world, I marveled at the remarkable words of poet laureate, Amanda Gorman, when she spoke at President Joe Biden’s Inauguration.

Her poem, “The Hill We Climb” concluded with this now immortal phrase:

There is always light,

if only we’re brave enough to see it;

if only we’re brave enough to be it.

Wow, what a challenge.

It doesn’t matter how bad things are, if we look closely enough, we can see the good and find opportunities to make things better.

There is always light.

We can see it.

We can be it.

We can point it out to others.

We can role-model it for those who are struggling.

We can be encouraged by it.

We can encourage others by bringing it.

May your day be full of light today.
