Let the Healing Begin
The election is over. Some are crying. Others are in disbelief. The silent ones walked softly into their voting booths and chose a new leader who never held political office. Most believed his odds of winning were slim to none. It's an amazing process to observe. I admit I got sucked in and remained glued to my TV until a winner was declared.
What's next? I'm hoping for some good old fashioned healing. We are all in this together. We face some serious challenges ahead. I believe the most powerful check and balance we have in this great country we live in is the power to vote. The entire House is up for re-election every two years. 1/3 of the Senate can be voted out every two years. And the President gets an up or down vote every four years. What appeared to be on the ballot yesterday was a vote for change. This is a great opportunity to stop the mudslinging and try some olive branches. Have a great day.
