This weekend, Morning Edition featured a crowd-sourced poem featuring things about America that people are thankful for. The remarkable Kwame Alexander took submissions and turned them into a beautiful poem. And guess what? The thing he said stood out to him from all the submissions from around the country was:

Public libraries get a specific mention in the poem itself, but the conversation beforehand has a lot more library love.
I highly recommend checking it out. I found it quite moving!
