Post election thoughts

November 9, 2016 at 10:34 am (Family, United States of America)

What I was hearing from many people was that their only wish was for this election to be over.

It is now over.

Of course, each individual must plot his or her own course of action. I can only speak for myself. I am not moving any time soon. I have no plans to travel, except to visit beloved family and friends who live at a distance in this vast and beautiful land.

I will always be thankful to live in a country that provided a refuge for my grandparents as they fled persecution and had nowhere else to turn. Once here, they were able to work, meet, fall in love, and begin life anew.

I owe my existence to their courage and determination.

    Feel as if I should lay a wreath on Katherine Lee Bates’ grave, in which she must be turning over.
