Last Friday, a Facebook friend posted a link to a Ted talk by Sarah Kay. I've never heard of her, but I always give any Ted Talk link the benefit of the doubt, because let's be honest here, Ted Talks make quantum physics fascinating to the average person.
I was moved to tears by this Ted Talk. The poem she starts out with, called simply "B", blew my mind. Talk about the beauty and the power of words.
God, I love it when people share their gifts with the world. For all the people who spew their hatred and ignorance, there are so many more people who choose to share their love and hope. The Internet can be an amazing curator of such wonder.
You can buy her poem in a hardcover book on Amazon.
