New Era of Optimism

New Era of Optimism

New leader chosen…

New era of empathy,

integrity, and truth.

New rule of law,

new dawn of democracy…

Call for unity.

Quell the violence.

Preserve the environment.

End the pandemic.

Rejoin the global family

in achieving common goals.

    1. When you visit your cousins, you might like a day trip to Lancaster. There used to be a narrow-gauge train and a museum or two. Gettysburg Battlefield is another interesting destination. Hershey Park is in the area too. I have been to Philadelphia only once, a long time ago, and toured the old capitol building museum.

  1. Amen Cheryl. And may I also say, Thank God. We desperately need to start finding common ground again. That common ground has to be the freedoms for which our forefathers (and mothers) died for. Has to be. We can’t do that is we are arguing about what reality is. We need to face reality not deny it. Thank you Cheryl – another beautiful poem πŸ™

    1. Thank you, Subbashini, for your hopeful comment. I think the US is back on track and ready to rebuild. We look forward to improved relations with countries around the world! ❀ We need to work together to end the pandemic and return to normal life. πŸ™‚



    1. Thank you, Murali. I am optimistic that we can solve our problems if we can work together. I am eager for the US to rejoin the Climate Accords and to honor our commitments around the world. Those things are already taking shape. We are hopeful that the pandemic will end as carefully tested vaccines become available. πŸ™‚

      All the best to you, Murali. Stay safe and be happy! ❀

    1. Deb, I appreciate your kind remarks. ❀ I have been so embarrassed by some US actions taken internationally in the last four years. I look forward to fences being mended both domestically and abroad. Issues like global warming and the pandemic need worldwide cooperation. We also need to honor the agreements we have made. Thank you so much for your good wishes. ❀ I hope you had a pleasant break. πŸ™‚ All the best! Cheryl

    1. The alternative to working together is such a dismal prospect! I am encouraged at how elections officials have publicly upheld the election laws even though they knew their jobs were at stake. That’s a belief in democracy and personal courage. It gives me hope! πŸ™‚ All the best, Dwight!
