This is My New Year Day... A Whole New Era!
Happy Inauguration Day!
10:00 a.m. PST
Proud, proud day.
I cannot think... it's all emotion and joyful tears.
I think of a favorite poem:
He drew a circle that shut me out—
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But Love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in!
It does not reflect the entire day or all my feelings, but it reminds me of a piece of the tapestry... "our patchwork heritage..." that is our history and our strength... and the words challenge me and give me courage.
