Hot winds howl and whip about
Parched trees sway frantically in the heat
It’s January, new normal?
Collectively we wait… breath held after the attack on our Capitol…for our newly elected leaders to be sworn in.
A majority of us fear all manner of mayhem might ensue before we can begin to exhale…
Even then we ponder what it will take to exorcise the cancer that has infected our nation.
A lesion we have attempted to cut out before has grown back seemingly more virulent. Clearly we did not get it all!
In fact, if we’re honest?
There are far too many among us who silently, secretly, fed the contagion insuring its survival.
I choose to be among those who will fight to contain and hopefully one day eradicate this disease of hatred from the country that I love.
