So so much damage has been done, and Joe and Kamala have a steep path ahead of them, but still: we can breathe again. Here's to making "politics" boring again--it will be nice to think that those in our government are just there, working, going about their business and doing their jobs and trying to improve the lot of ALL Americans.
"With liberty and justice for all."
"This land is my land, this land is your land."
We will rebuild, reconcile and recover
and every known nook of our nation and
every corner called our country,
our people diverse and beautiful will emerge,
battered and beautiful
When day comes we step out of the shade,
aflame and unafraid
The new dawn blooms as we free it
For there is always light,
if only we're brave enough to see it
If only we're brave enough to be it."
United States Youth Poet Laureate
