Amanda Gorman, America's youth poet laureate who captivated so many in the recent Superbowl and Presidential Inauguration, wrote this poem for United Way last year. Inspired by the work she saw United Way tackling during COVID-19, she titled her poem Live United, to motivate people during dark times. Her words elevate the importance of taking care of each other. She captures the promise, possibility, and potential of galvanizing the caring power of communities. Amanda's clarion call "to be hope-sighted" is uplifting; every time we watch this video, our hope is renewed
