For Every One by Jason Reynolds

Into the Wild

For Every One Read Online Free - Originally performed at the Kennedy Center for the unveiling of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, and later as a tribute to Walter Dean Myers, this stirring and inspirational poem is New York Times bestselling author and National Book Award finalist Jason Reynolds’s rallying cry to the dreamers of the world.

For Every One is just that: for every one. For every one person. For every one dream. But especially for every one kid. The kids who dream of being better than they are. Kids who dream of doing more than they almost dare to dream. Kids who are like Jason Reynolds, a self-professed dreamer. Jason does not claim to know how to make dreams come true; he has, in fact, been fighting on the front line of his own battle to make his own dreams a reality. He expected to make it when he was sixteen. Then eighteen. Then twenty-five. Now, some of those expectations have been realized. But others, the most important ones, lay ahead, and a lot of them involve kids, how to inspire them. All the kids who are scared to dream, or don’t know how to dream, or don’t dare to dream because they’ve NEVER seen a dream come true. Jason wants kids to know that dreams take time. They involve countless struggles. But no matter how many times a dreamer gets beat down, the drive and the passion and the hope never fully extinguish—because just having the dream is the start you need, or you won’t get anywhere anyway, and that is when you have to take a leap of faith.

A pitch perfect graduation, baby, or love my kid gift.

3.5 Stars Netgalley provided me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review I'm a simple woman: I see anything by Jason Reynolds, I pounce on it. This is a poem/letter for "dreamers" in the world. It's as much of testament of Reynolds' trials and errors as much as it is a call-to-action f...

Leave it to Jason Reynolds to provide the words I desperately needed to hear at the exact right time. Brb, gotta go dry my tears.

Beautiful. Everyone would benefit from reading this letter/poem of dreaming and jumping and persisting and accepting. "Your dream is the mole behind your ear, that chip in your front tooth, your freckles. It's the thing that makes you special, but not the thing that makes you great. The courage in tryin...

Why is everything that Jason Reynolds writes completely amazing? I LOVED this so much. I think that people of all ages can easily relate to this. I related to this especially as a college student who is a little lost between the expectations that others have of me and what I really want. I love t...

Is he superhuman? Who is his editor? Does he even need an editor? Why waste money on other authors when you can put your money on anything Reynolds writes? Gosh, this quick verse inspires anyone because it's for everyone. Everyone who ever had a doubt. No one knows the answers to all the question...

Wonderfully short and simple! I heard Jason Reynolds describe this book as being what he considers a gift-book—one given to graduates and passed along from person to person, and I would agree that For Every One is just that. It is a book of encouragement from a fellow struggler in the game of lif...

I want to put this book into the hands of everyone I know. I want to shout praises for its words from mountaintops. I’m again blown away by Jason Reynolds and his unique gift to put to words the discovery of self, the struggle of being a dreamer, and the comfort of not being alone in this world....

I love anything by Jason Reynolds, and although this is a very quick read, I liked the language, the personality, and the message of this book.
