Inauguration thoughts

Maybe its just because many of us were children then, but I remember once having very positive feelings about this country and great optimism about its future. Since then, I have become so accustomed to being disappointed, so conditioned to the fear-mongering, and so used to the necessity of cynicism that it's quite an adjustment to believe that things could potentially get better. Repairing the damage of the last few years is going to be a long and arduous process, but our most egregious mistakes are already being corrected and it seems that we can finally be positive and optimistic again.

Regular posting about ridiculous nonsense will continue later this week.
