I'm finally coming back after the elections. I really didn't want to post before, during or after the elections because I was frankly scared about being too emotional on-line about the whole thing. I am truly disappointed, but not surprised abou the results--both nationally and locally. Bottom line, for me, is that obviously the majority of people in this country are not yet in enough pain to face the fear and pain involved in change. Unfortunately, I really think that they pain level is going to rise exponentially in the next 4 years. I just hope we all survive.
The good news was watching my daughter's excitement as she voted for the first time. I know several first-time voters, actually, and they were all really thrilled and a bit overwhelmed at the responsibility. And, even better news, several of their friends who couldn't vote yet were jealous. I hope this bodes well for us as we look to a new generation that may take their responsibilities as citizens more seriously that some generations have in the past. I just hope they don't get too jaded too quickly.
