Hope

It’s been one day short of a week since the historic election.  Many that I have talked to have expressed the same feelings I have. There is a new sense of hope; a sense that things can change.  I hadn’t realized the extent of the depression I have been in.  It is hard to know such things while in the midst of them; it is only when we are able to look back that we can see what really was.  The shift in the attitude of our nation has fostered a shift in my own attitude.  I have been weighted down by the heaviness and fear, the the anxiety of the what might happen.  On election night I broke down, surprised and relieved by my tears.  There is hope. If our nation can change, so can I. I celebrate possibility!
