a horrible day in washington that i’ll never forget.
a wonderful day in georgia that i’ll never forget.
in the light and the dark
of the very early morning
of the very next day
our new president and vice president
have finally been confirmed
and I’ll never forget how light won over dark.
full deck of cards found on election day
did the player win, lose, or draw?
“life is not a matter of holding good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.”
robert louis stevenson
“yesterday I dared to struggle. today I dare to win.”
i’m proud of my country – it dared to do both.
today, as i walked downtown,
the kerrytown bells played ‘the star spangled banner’
church bells rang
farmers at the market chattered
people cheered, cried, laughed
fireworks shot off in yards
the air was light and it was electric.

“A patriot is not someone who condones the conduct of our country whatever it does.
It is someone who fights every day for the ideals of the country, whatever it takes.”
