The impact of last night is still dawning on me…it may take several days to appreciate fully what has happened. Let us celebrate this day for its significance and mark this experience in history and in our present, but let us not forget that there is more work to do…or undo as the case may be.
Today seems a bit brighter, my weariness a bit lighter. Hope has been re-ignited, not that which expresses itself in giddiness or self-satisfaction, rather that which reminds one of those who have gone before and not lost faith. This hope is grounded in work accomplished and in fervent devotion to what lie ahead.
