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:

HOW THANKFUL PEOPLE ARE FOR PUBLIC LIBRARIES!

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!
