DAY 30: The Hill We Climb

I have been waiting so long to hold this book in my hands. It came out today and you bet I paid the extra $3 to have it delivered on the day it came out. What a special moment in our nation’s history for us to witness and be a part of. I sat at my desk and cried like a baby watching Amanda Gorman recite and perform this poem live on Inauguration Day. I can’t help but feel inspired every time I just think about it. I just watched an interview with Amanda and Oprah on Oprah’s Apple Tv+ show and this girl is so young and so wise. I wish I had an ounce of her talent. This book will have to do.

  1. I also got it (yesterday via Amazon somehow!) and savored each page once again, hearing her voice in my head with each line! Remarkable – thanks for sharing your connection!

  2. I was sitting in my room doing the same that day – thank goodness it was on a remote Wednesday so we could watch her make history! How did I miss the release of this book? Thanks for the PSA- adding to cart now!

  3. I love this line: ” you bet I paid the extra $3 to have it delivered on the day it came out”–probably because I totally agree that it is worth at least that much to be able to hold the book right now. I have loved the interviews I’ve seen of Amanda Gorman. This slice was a nice reminder of the joy and inspiration her words bring.
