What Hope Looks Like

We march

in 836 cities

well spoken

young people

explain class

explain race

what has to change

what will change when they

vote  leading us

to a place where hope

and action become action

and hope, once again.

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.


  1. I taught at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School from their Opening Day in 1990 until my Retirement Day in 2006. I am so proud and happy that the expectations we had for that high school are manifested today. And I am thrilled that they are literally taking the hands of their less affluent counterparts in Chicago and other long suffering communities and using their platform to help others. My favorite moment was when the MSD student walked hand in hand with MLK Jr.s granddaughter and the nine year old echoed her Grandfather so eloquently , …followed by a pleased with herself childish smile.
    “And a little child shall lead them”.
