Thankful the Election is Over

So, there was this election yesterday? Maybe you heard about it. Maybe, today, you are sorting through irate comments on Facebook, or, maybe the majority of comments are euphoric. If you are like me; you are sorting through a lot of one and a little of the other, or, vice-versa.

All I can say about this is: it's over.

Now we have to pull ourselves up by the bootstraps and get on with the business of being American. I hope we can do it all together, as a country. I hope people with rival political and social opinions can set aside their differences and recognize the humanity in one another. I hope we can agree to disagree while maintaining our fidelity to our individual beliefs and that the hurt feelings generated by this election will fade with time, allowing friends and neighbors to be friends and neighbors rather than politcal foes.

In the meantime, I'm sure that we can all agree that dinnertime without a robo-call of some political nature is a beautiful, beautiful thing.

And, that's a start.
