My fellow poet and long-time pal Gary Schroeder and I joined dozens of other poets for this event mounted by Catherine O’Neill Thorn‘s Art from Ashes, a youth-empowerment organization that has changed the lives of more than one generation of young people. What a privilege to have been part of that moment in time!
