Should Have Sent a Poet

The Dugout is one of the funniest and best websites on the internet. One of the guys responsible for the Dugout, Nick Dallamora, is a student at Virginia Tech, and was in class a building over as the shooting occured on Monday. His chilling account of that morning’s event can be found at AOL Fanhouse, here. Yesterday, Dallamora wrote for Deadspin, talking about the aftermath for the students and community of Virginia Tech. His account is honest and tragic, and worth reading, here.

During the account, Dallamora mentions a spine-tingling speech given by Nikki Giovanni, who’s a poet. Naturally, YouTube-savants, We Are The Postmen managed to find the video of her short speech. Hopefully, it’s posted at the top there, but since I don’t have access to YouTube at work, this is just a wing and a prayer. If you can’t see it above, check it out at We Are The Postmen, here. On Tuesday, we tried to offer poetry, but I don’t think anything we could have offered hear can touch the grace and fire of Giovanni’s poem.
