I’m already seeing folks on the left and right start up with their bull. But many many people need a rest for today, a little indulgence in hope, happiness and renewed promise.
No one person is going to save America from its problems. Democracy is not an occasional act, every couple of years. It’s an enduring duty for citizens. The list of issues to address and FIX is long. We must be prepared to engage with the new administration and Congressional leadership to move America forward, toward justice and peace and universal prosperity, to upend the systemic racism and misogyny baked into the country.
So take some time today to celebrate. Exhale. Enjoy the clear difference between yesterday and today. Tomorrow we roll up our sleeves and get to work.
How blessed are those who keep justice,
Who practice righteousness at all times!
