Alright! Land of Hope and Dreams
It was a day. The brute is gone. Biden declared that fragile democracy has prevailed. Harris shattered multiple ceilings as she was sworn in by Sonia Sotomayor with her hand on Thurgood Marshall's Bible. Black, brown, young, female voices spoke. Among them was poet Amanda Gorman, who called on an "era of just redemption" for "a country that is bruised, but whole." That night, Sprinsteen echoed her, invoking sorrows left behind "and all this darkness past." Not yet, but light glimmers.
