Can't help but wonder what it's going to look like when the debris left by this regime settles. [View all]

It feels like a take down of everything good we believed we were as a country and a grinding of the heel on the places we were already broken.

Daily, so much of my mind's been occupied with listening for the other shoe to drop from what seems like an endless supply of shoes.
I realized today I've been so busy thinking about what I don't want (current occupant of Oval Office and all that means) that I haven't spent time envisioning what I do want, not just for President but for us as a nation.
I'm going to spend some time each day to imagine a country where all the things we've petitioned for and voted for and worked for will come to pass.

I was so busy watching stories of the worst of what we have to offer each other and the world that I took my eyes off all the goodness that is here living in the hearts of Americans. Of us. We have so many heroes in our midst. Some of them make the news but most of our heroes are the quiet ones. They go about the business of making the world a better place by making kindness a priority. They do it by caring. That's who we really are. Millions and millions of us.

We're evolving as a nation and it's not easy when not everyone wants to move into the future. We're headed that way none the less and I'm going to enjoy envisioning it. Then, if I live to be very old, to see it come to pass.
