Inauguration Day

9:00 am, January 20, 2017

I sit here in the semi-darkness, wind and rain falling outside.  I have just completed reading a book on Theodore Roosevelt, a man who embodied everything I believed America was about; honesty, integrity, bravery and compassion.  I am suddenly struck with the fact that beginning today Donald Trump will be my county’s leader and I cannot hold back the sense of despair and the rush of tears that follow.
