Deep Breath

Just a quick stop here.

Like so many, I watched today as the adults moved in to clean up the mess left by the warring thieves who have taken control of government for the last eight years.

Like so many, I watched today as the new president stood up and asked us to dare to look forward rather than back.

Like so many, I watched millions of normal people brave the cold and to stand in line for hours to be part of something which was much bigger than themselves.

I do not know what will happen in the coming months and years. Change and heartbreak. Hard work. A grudging hope.

Today for the first time in years I took a deep breath and was happy for the country that I live in. Brought home some flowers for Mrs set.element just to make her happy.
