This piece was inspired by the poem "Let There Be New Flowering" by Lucille Clifton. During 2020, we saw our country literally and figuratively burn. My hope is that after this incendiary time in our history, we will have new growth and a rebirth of America, and it will be influenced by humanity, equality, and love for our planet and for one another.
