Last night, our nation witnessed one of its most exciting elections in my memory. Like a great movie or an anticipated sporting event, there were high stakes, unexpected twists, crushing defeats, and exhilarating victories. Political critiquing aside (there is enough of it out there, that my ignorant voice is hardly needed), this election showed the power of even a flawed voting system in initiating sweeping changes, to an extent that even the “experts” were blind to it mere weeks ago.
I don’t claim to know what the coming four years will hold for our nation–I certainly pray for the best in every regard.
For this moment, I am simply smiling and shaking my head at the drama of the story we’re watching unfold.
At least for this instant, my political interest is unusually piqued.
