What might we be if only we tried.

What might we become if only we’d listen.

Schools scared to death.

The truth is, one education under desks,

Stooped low from bullets;

That plunge when we ask

Where our children

Shall live

& how

& if


Y’all we have raised almost 1 MILLION dollars for @everytown to help end gun violence in just 2 days. This is what the beginning of change looks like. Let’s keep giving.

Editor's note: Amanda Gorman's fundraiser has now raised over 1 MILLION dollars.
