Amanda Gorman: Earthrise

"Where despite disparities
We all care to protect this world,
This riddled blue marble, this little true marvel
To muster the verve and the nerve
To see how we can serve
Our planet. You don’t need to be a politician
To make it your mission to conserve, to protect,
To preserve that one and only home
That is ours,
To use your unique power
To give next generations the planet they deserve.

We are demonstrating, creating, advocating
We heed this inconvenient truth, because we need to be anything but lenient
With the future of our youth.

And while this is a training,
in sustaining the future of our planet,
There is no rehearsal. The time is
Because the reversal of harm,
And protection of a future so universal
Should be anything but controversial.

So, earth, pale blue dot
We will fail you not."

Thanks Senator Shumer: What a smokin' good surprise!


If you had told me in 1975 when I joined NORML, that in 45 years the US Senate Leader would be wishing us all a Happy 420 day, I'd have asked you to pass me some of that good shit you were smoking.
