Renewed hope in America

Though I have been actively engaged in, and attentive to, politics for longer than I’ve been old enough to vote, it’s been a long time since I felt like I had a voice in American politics. Loud and passionate, Baby Boomers and Republicans have been talking so loudly, and at cross-purposes to the things that are important to me for a long time.

Tonight, beginning with Susan Eisenhower (and Michael McDonald, really), I began to feel hope for what this country should be, can be, and might again be.

I feel like my America found its voice tonight, and I hope to the core of my faith in what America stands for that that voice keeps booming across our consciousness for a long, long time.

It’s not about the person. It’s about the priorities. And I think we might actually realign from the morass of distinctly un-American things this country has been doing and saying lately.

I finally hope and believe that we can come back.

Yay USA.

Okay, now your turn...
