The sense of fear is palpable today.
Likely due to the symbolism of the New Year, the reality that an apparently callous, immoral narcissist is poised to take the reins of our nation is sinking in. Speaking with people to whom I usually only say “hello” in passing, tears watered in eyes, nervous laughter trickled from lips and not one of us ready for the horrors that await us.
May all be free from grief and fear. May the powers too terrible to imagine be staid.
