more than relief

As the day progresses and the news continues, I have realized that this truly is one of the happiest days of my life. From the moment that the events of September 11th, 2001 occurred, I felt that our nation was immersed in a noxious and poisonous miasma of deceit and treachery perpetrated by our elected leaders who were engaged in a a partnership with unscrupulous corporates to loot our national treasury and dismantle our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Today, for the first time in this horrible five years, I have hope.

Today, at my home in "the heartland," we are enjoying a lovely summer day on the eighth of November. The sky is clear and the sun is bright, a stirring breeze is blowing, and the temperature is almost ninety degrees.

What a wonderful allegory for today. A bright and beautiful new beginning. Yes, there are still cold months ahead and much to do, but we finally have our national hope back. The United States has the chance and the promise to return to greatness and nobility.

This truly is a great day, a day to remember and savor and celebrate.
