Many of the poets submitted their poems hoping to make a difference. Says poet Lola Haskins, “The world is in such pain. Sometimes I think if I could only reach out a hand. . .And I know that's what poems can do. . .” Poet Lee Sharkey adds, “A poem is a fragile thing, yet it may stir the moral imagination, without which we cannot conceive of peace.” Poet Jane Hirshfield continues, “Poetry reinforces the part of us that feels largely, knows largely, our place in the whole—and in such a state of soul, the need for peace is as obvious as our need for water, for air, for hope.”
