My name in my Twitter profile has, over the last four days, changed from “So damned disappointed” to “Things are looking up” to, finally, “doing much better now... thank you.”
And for good reason.
I’m not expecting miracles here. I’m just expecting a return to a world where hate speech and white supremacy and the like will be relegated to the deep, dark corners of the web and not the mainstream. Where we can work with our allies for the betterment of society. Where we will honor our promises and obligations. Where our leaders are not playing a never ending game of “Cover Your Ass” to the detriment of our lives. Where we will prioritize life over personal profit.
I want... a return to normalcy.
Please don’t let me down President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris. Make us proud.
