At Last

Some of us didn't have to wait so long. Unlike my 56 years, and Roger's 66, one of my first-cousins twice removed had to wait only three months for this moment. Who would have ever guessed that we would have to suffer through and endure the most monstrous years of the worst president in US history to finally get here? I'd say my little loved ones are very lucky to be so young in this new world.
Every blog we read, everywhere we turn, there is a promise of something, an upwelling. Here in the midst of winter, a catastrophic economic downturn, a global climate undergoing massive change, and ancient wars still raging-- we actually feel relief, hope, and joy.

Now our national nightmare is over.

We have a new beginning, this genius of our democracy.

At last.
