For the students and others joining them in support at this week’s March for Our Lives, we offer a selection of lines of poetry perfect for posters, banners, or placards.

You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.


Maya Angelou, from “Still I Rise
