Our country has to go through some dark history to shed its juvenile naivete/ignorance. Other places like Europe have done this with favorable results. Looks like it may be our turn. May be what it takes.
So, the last phase of my life will be witness to the aftermath of what just happened. My kids enter adulthood into this. For them, all I can hope for is a wellspring of righteous inspiration to rescue the ship, right the course, and see things through to a more just country.
