There have been funerals in parking lots, funeral parlors have been overbooked and turned away customers. Los Angeles reduced its air quality regulations because so many people were being cremated!
AND if this was a hoax, it was a good one, fooling everyone across the globe!
Both hubby and I cried as the Spirituals were sung while all of our new officials stood quietly. The Washington Mall and reflecting pool with its thousands of American flags waving in the gentle winter breeze were the perfect backdrop as the sun set. Someone had gotten the entire Mall lit with soft lights as well!
If you listened carefully, that warm breeze across the continent was a global sigh of relief that a gentle, smart, generous, purposed adult had taken the reigns of our nation. A person who was surrounded by loving family and staff and not people who wanted a piece of the pie. Of course, there will be more storms before the calm, but I have faith in our Democracy.
