(Kim here) I think I would go for more of a serious passage. Or not. I would do serious, but everyone would have to wear clown noses. Please read If I Were The Moon by Sheree Fitch.
Such a beautiful book and it would tell everyone how much I love them. It makes me cry just writing this. An important book for a hard time. Who would read it, I don’t know. Rock, Paper, Scissor for that.
(Angela here) Why, oh why did I include this question? This is by far the hardest one so far. I’ve been thinking about it for a few weeks now and finally have an answer. It’s a poem called “On the Pulse of Morning” by Maya Angelou. She read this work at the inauguration of Bill Clinton in 1993. This passage speaks to me in particular:
“The horizon leans forward,
Offering you space
To place new steps of change
Here, on the pulse of this fine day
You may have the courage
To look up and out and upon me…”
