“Blanco’s contributions to the fields of poetry and the arts have already paved a path forward for future generations of writers. Richard’s writing will be wonderfully fitting for an inaugural that will celebrate the strength of the American people and our nation’s great diversity.”
—President Barack Obama
“Blanco showed great courage . . . and it’s courage that is the most important of all virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”
