You're Only A Day Away

Ok, the sun will come out tomorrow. If not locally, then somewhere. The world will not end. I will still be here, even though I'm feeling bleak, because I don't dare hope that things will change. To have hope is to risk heartbreak. I only have direct control to change my own life, and heck, I need to do a better job at that. Today, not tomorrow.

So.

I find it hard to have faith, to believe in the goodness of others, not just the bad. To believe in myself is a regular struggle. But despite everything, despite the differences we have and the flaws that still need to be resolved, we believe in democracy. We believe in it so inherently that we take it for granted. It makes me sad and angry that more people don't exercise their right to vote. But it's good to see that more people bother to care this time around.

Paul Krugman's Election Day column is worth reading, regardless of one's political leanings. The worst one can say is that it's maybe a little bit sappy. But I'll take it.
