Upon seeing the election results this morning, I was tempted to run out the door screaming, “God have mercy on us all!” Being that I was in my jammies and I hadn’t had my cup of coffee yet, I refrained.
The neighbors won’t fear having to run inside and lock their doors (this time). My sister-in-law just told me things are not so bleak as they might appear. Many socially liberal Republicans lost and, the happy reverse, many socially conservative Democrats won. I am much calmer now but I still think that I will quietly repeat “God have mercy on us all” anyway. I have a feeling I should have been doing this all along.
