Watched the election last night via the internet (no cable), and I can't say that I'm unhappy, and I'll leave it at that. What struck me is the hope that is pegged on a human being, no matter who is supported or what party is involved. All the people who made their way to vote simply wanted one thing: to feel safe.
"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers." - M. Scott Peck
