The other side of the pond and my soap box.

Yesterday was a day of many changes. We all went out and voted and we have a new President.
We know that things will not change overnight and there are many issues facing us. It is my hope we can find some common ground and the powers that be- work together.
We- the collective we- in all of us- need to work together.
We are in a war- not one we can win. There are no winners in war.
We are in a recession.
A war we might be able to win.
We need to get a grip on spending and thinking we deserve to have everything and anything we ever wanted. When did we get so greedy? I am a product of the 60's. There were many good concepts then that we can apply to now. Take stock of your needs and wants. Take stock of what you really need.
You need to pay your bills- you need to take care of family and friends. We need to reach out and help those who need help. We need jobs.
We need leadership and government's who are not out for their own advancement.
I hope this is what we have to look forward to.
It is a new day.
