Dear UUSP Community,
Dateline: Wednesday after the Inauguration.
Reflection on the Biden-Harris memorial for the 400,000 Americans lost to COVID-19: How good and right to have leaders with enough vision not to make spectacles of themselves. Reflection on President Biden’s inauguration speech: How grand to hear the real issues for real people addressed with real honesty.
Favorite Inaugural Truth Statement: We are a good people who have come far and still have far to go. A Single Irony: Mind-streaming “Gonna lay down my sword and shield down by the riverside” with Inaugural military guard streaming alongside the Potomac. Most Amazing Grace: On the Inaugural stage, former president Obama and current vice president Kamala Harris. Equally Most Amazing Grace: A new president – of the people, by the people, for the people.
Favorite Encouragement Remembered from Protests I’ve Been In: No matter what, we can always work on building circles of decency.
Glad I’m in your circle,
