Is it over yet?

J

I watched the inauguration of President Biden and Vice President Harris. I also watched the departure of Former President Trump and his family.

I’m feeling a sense of relief in that everything will soon return to some level of normalcy. I feel safe that this new administration is in the hands of experienced leaders and people who will put the country first.

I may not agree with everything this new administration will do, but I feel it will be thought out and not a knee jerk reaction to social media. I’m also relieved to see a very diverse group of people appointed to key administration positions. Gone are the family influencers, the yes-men, and those with racist tendencies and special interests.

But I’m afraid it’s not over yet. As I write, news that the Articles of Impeachment will be sent to the Senate next week for a trial. To say we live in tumultuous times is a vast understatement.

Will the Senate convict? Should he be held accountable? If they don’t convict, what message does that send to those who stormed our Capital?


Healing the deep divisions in our Republic will take understanding, patience, truth, and love of the neighbor.

For now I plan to reread the elegant words of Amanda Gorman.

“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.”

…that’s 30 for this week.
