“yesterday I dared to struggle. today I dare to win.”

-bernadette devlin

 

i’m proud of my country – it dared to do both.

today, as i walked downtown,

the kerrytown bells played ‘the star spangled banner’

cars honked

church bells rang

farmers at the market chattered

drummer drummed

people cheered, cried, laughed

fireworks shot off in yards

the air was light and it was electric.
