This short, gentle poem is a prayer for our country. America is home to neighbors of every background. Our differences are great and many, but throughout our history, our differences have made our nation strong. We all have hopes and dreams and believe that tomorrow holds promise and possibility. With compassion, kindness, mercy, and grace towards one another, we can walk together in the direction of our dreams.
We centered this poem on a bulletin board and placed all around it pictures of the beautiful faces of our neighbors from across this nation. We talked a lot about who our neighbors are and what makes a good neighbor.
