Say Yes

Last week, Utah legislator Christine Johnson read a poem to the members of her chamber in lieu of a morning prayer. Some say she was trying to shake things up by reading a poem by activist Andrea Gibson. But while a poem by a lesbian who believes in speaking truth to power might not be par for the course in the Utah state house, I think the poem, called “Say Yes”, is a beautiful and uplifting piece that could inspire anyone. You can – and I think should – watch Gibson read it below, but if you need to read it you can find the words here.
