A cautious, dubious, introvert at heart, a large energy barrier must be surpassed for me to feel hopeful. I’m always watching for the house of cards to collapse; my faith in gravity is incessant.
So to pop the champagne this week was a giant leap for laurakind.
Mute your TV (or turn it OFF) because they are spewing nonsense again: we are not experiencing a “somber moment” for our country. We’re in a buoyant bubble of relief that we might return to some sense of normalcy after seven ridiculous years where we watched, jaw dropped, heart pounding, utterly flabbergasted and embarrassed for our nation.
Raise a glass to the brave, smart law enforcers who won’t step away from the hard part.
