Let’s pick up the emotional pieces from last Wednesday’s armed insurrection of the US Capital building. In just over a week the federal government will start working again for the people. It will bring this brutal and painful pandemic under control. Once again, we will engage with the world in tackling the climate crisis. Social justice, identifying and eliminating system racism, will become a priority. There is light at the end of this long dark tunnel. There is hope for a better day. Despair and darkness will be dimmed by hope and progress. We can breathe easier.
