[SOLD] Aflame and Unafraid : A tribute to Amanda Gorman

Through this handmade fountain pen, we pay tribute to Amanda Gorman’s performance of her poem “The Hill We Climb” at the recent presidential inauguration.

Her words are as relevant to South Africa, to the world, as to the US:

“…our people diverse and beautiful will emerge battered and beautiful, when the day comes we step out of the shade aflame and unafraid, the new dawn blooms as we free it, for there is always light if only we’re brave enough to see it, if only we’re brave enough to be it.”

Wow, every time I hear it, this resets my heartbeat to a joyful rhythm.

And this pen is our way of paying respect to Amanda Gorman’s inner beauty and strength … and pizzazz.
