      • Hey Doon,

        This nation has had its share of problems and yet always seems to mend itself.

        According to ABC, there is discussion for the Senate to reconvene in order vote and certify the election. This needs to happen. This stunt by the Republicans breaks my heart.

        Now there is discussion regarding a new impeachment effort. Let’s see how that plays out.

        I share a certain amount of guilt as I’m complicit since I voted for Trump. That certainly “burns” me to no end. I’ll have to live with that.

        I hope the best for President Biden and I pray our legislature can work together for the betterment of our country.

        • Whether you’re chosen candidate won or lost, part of moving on should involve taking down all of the political signs the adorn our road sides and front yards. Enough is enough, we can be better and do better.
