I was thinking about this this morning

4 years ago my brother, the 15th, my brother had surgery to remove life threatening cancer (tongue cancer) at UVa.

My uncle bill you usually is a good guy was in town and was in the waiting room as we waited to see my brother before he went in for surgery.

We are all sitting around a table having coffee and Uncle Bill looks at me with a grin on his face and says, "SO you guys going to move out of the country?" laughing a bit and looking over at my stepfather. My stepfather smartly knew that Bill had just touched on a raw nerve kept a poker face on.

I looked up at my dear Uncle and said "No, we are going to stay and get OUR country back"

Decorum and class did not allow me to add a "f#$@ you!" on at the end of that.

Tuesday for all its truly joyous reverberations, impromptu celebrations in the streets, and patriotism was about hope and getting our country back also had a measure of "f#$@ you!" in it also. WE however had the decorum and class to be happy and sing the National Anthem and not openly state that but it IS there.
