    Let us look foward.  Let us insist that OUR government is accountable - to us, to international law, and to our Constitution.  To do so going forward requires nothing less than an honest accounting of how we arrived as where we now found ourselves.

    My hope as always is embodied in one word:  Peace.   But Peace is far more than mere absence of armed conflict.  It is a state of wholeness, and wholeness is not possible unless we include all, good and bad, in our evaluation of our nation and ourselves.

    This diary is what I wanted to see on this day.

    Obama presents us with so much promise that it would be so easy to simply let our joy sweep us forward from today into the future without remembering the darkness that threatened to overwhelm our nation.

    We cannot reach for joy unless we are whole.

      do we still have a Republic and a Constitution if our elected officials will not stand up for them on our behalf?

        are one way of saying:

        Justice cannot be sacrificied to expediency.

        A message like that always speaks to me.
