Hope Reborn

Yes, I know.

Guantánamo is still functioning.

The US  is still violating Pakistani sovereignty and killing civilians with drones.

Not to mention the Dodge City-style slaying of Osama Bin Laden.

But it would take a heart of stone not to be stirred by the outpouring of joy and sheer relief at President Obama’s victory in the election. There will be stormy waters ahead, but at least the healthcare package is safe for now, and there is less possibility of an attack on Iran.

So go for it, Mr President. Face down the bigots, racists and ignoramuses. You have four years to pursue what makes for peace and reconciliation in America and in the world, and to start creating a truly compassionate order.

We’re praying for you.
