Here is a poem about building bridges by one of our school’s English teachers. Enjoy!

Building Bridges

Building bridges is a beautiful thing.
Yesterday morning and afternoon
That’s what a group of us did.
It was in support of others.
In caring for others, we carried each other.

Building bridges is a hard thing.
There are the distractions.
There are the obstructions.
Moments come and go so quickly for building bridges.
I let such a moment slip from my hands last night.

Building bridges is an important thing.
In too many places and in too many ways rather than coming together
We’re coming apart.
In this human family we’re all a part of
We need to build bridges.

Building bridges is a beautiful thing.
