I love poetry even though sometimes I cannot follow or fully appreciate the prose. Yesterday’s Presidential Inauguration featured Richard Blanco reading his poem One Today to the President and the nation. Blanco is a Cuban-American who happens to be gay and lives in New England (Maine to be exact). In lieu of posting the full text (which you can read here), I’ve inserted the video of his reading. His poem stresses unity and the common bonds that touch us all.
