8136F316-F35C-4589-B25B-88AFDA4B7D9BWhile the Trump administration is contesting the election and filing lawsuits (as is their right), there is no doubt that come January 20, 2021, we will have a new President and Vice President. The United States has a rough road ahead though. The election has proven we remain deeply divided and civil discourse remains for the most part MIA. While Biden won the popular vote by more than 4 million, 70 million people voted for Trump. The distrust of politicians and the media is at an all-time high. When we can’t even agree on the simplest of measures to keep one another safe in the middle of a pandemic, there is something drastically wrong. Four years ago I was devastated when Trump won, yet I was willing to give him a chance. I prayed that once he took office he’d realize the enormity and gravity of the responsibility he was taking on and perhaps his better nature would prevail. Obviously that did not happen. As we enter a new political era and begin the difficult task of healing this nation, my fervent wish is that once they get over their shock of Trump’s loss, the majority of his supporters will give Biden and Harris a chance. Whatever else you want to say about Biden, he has a long history of working across the aisle. While there’s a lot that I’ve disagreed with him about over his long political career, I do believe that if anyone has a chance of restoring bipartisanship to Washington and mending our broken country, it’s Joe. No matter what candidate you voted for, if you truly care about our country, you should hope and pray for his success.
