One Family

At the Inauguration two weeks ago, a prophet spoke to us. He was not a preacher, nor a politician. He was simply a poet, telling us of "One sun ... One light ... One ground ... One wind ... One sky ... One moon ... All of us ... Together." One family.

Richard Blanco wrote "One Today" specifically for the occasion. I doubt he was trying to be a prophet, and he may never be one again. But on that morning, on that stage, he was. So listen to his poem, and hear not just his words, but God's Love.

"You are my sibling. We are family. This is the essential truth of life. It is the only moral truth that really matters."
