We have a new president. He is a geek president, He has called on many with hope and yes he is our first black president. There is history in that. That is not why I think he is great though. As Helen Keller once put it "There is no king who has not had a slave among his ancestors, and no slave who has not had a king among his." I think he is great at the end of the day because he seems to believe that we can do something. He brings a sense we can change the world a little. If you don't agree with his politics that is fine. One of the great things about our country is we don't have to agree. We are sort of built on the notion we can politely disagree and still be a people and still be friends. Even if you don't care for his politics I hope your finding something good in all of this.
One last thought that occurred to me today.
It is the great joy of the world that there is change. In change and growth we prove we are better than history says we can be. Glorious.
And now back to watching the winter wonderland outside my window.
