Figuring it out at kitchen tables.

I wasn’t going to post about the inauguration, because after all, what could I possibly add that hasn’t already been said?

Well, I can add my voice to the chorus. What an amazing day. My heart is glad for the change in direction and for the hope.

Today reminded me very much of Clinton’s inauguration. We had a snow day that January day, my senior year in high school. I was too young to vote. But I watched the festivities with rapt attention, feeling like a part of history, like I was a part of something very important, sitting at my parents’ kitchen table in Iowa.

And today? Today was like that, but amplified. Because it’s not “Yes he can.” It’s “Yes we can.”

We’re all part of the solution. Act. Volunteer. Make a difference.

I saw this video several months ago and have been haunted by it ever since. It’s difficult to watch, but it puts today’s events in a very important perspective. And, every day is a good day for Mavis Staples.

One of my very young friends refers to our new president as “Rock Bama.” I love that. Rock on, Rock Bama. Rock on.
