TURNING THE PAGE
I couldn’t let this day go by without acknowledging it here. Back in November when Biden officially won the election, I sighed the biggest sigh of relief and felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. When talking with friends, we all collectively agreed that we hadn’t realized just how much stress we felt until it was all said and done. Since then I’ve been counting down the days to January 20. The domestic terrorism at the Capitol threw in a hefty dose of reality– illuminating just how important this new era would be.
In a way it feels like we’re in suspended reality. I keep asking having to remind myself that this is happening and it’s real. The painful four year term. The campaign that seemed to go on and on and on. All the debates (some more cringeworthy than others). An election day that was more like an election week. The recounts. The false rhetoric. An attempted siege of the Capitol. All while a pandemic raged on.
After all that, Biden’s inauguration is finally here.
I really don’t have a lot to say other than to say I am hopeful. I’m relieved we are done with that particular chapter of our country’s history. Biden and his team have their work cut out for them, but again… I am hopeful. Praying for an uneventful, peaceful day today as our country turns the page and starts this new chapter.
