I'm just profoundly moved today by what is about to take place in this nation.
As everyone who reads this blog knows, I'm not one to place any trust in government to be a solution to the problems we humans face. Most often governments are a part of the problem. But I can look past all of that and see people. And with that in mind I am very hopeful that the changes that are represented in the activities of this day open up new possibilities for many people that have felt hopelessly stuck in a hole.
Three years ago I spent the year reading the letters written by MLK and some big shifts happened in my thinking as my eyes were opened to things my former conservative White Christian and political ideologies had kept me blinded to. My prayer today is that enough people are on the verge of another leap forward in their individual lives that will bring us closer to a day when we truly love our neighbor as our self.
Let's let love govern how we live.....not destructive/divisive ideologies.
