What He Said

Apart from changing Election Day to Inauguration Day in the title, I would say Amen to this prayer, and I suspect most of us commoners would. We will need all the help we can get and to acknowledge where that help will come from.

This part especially hit home:

"Awaken Your people to know that they are not called to be a sect fleeing the world But rather a community of faith renewing the world."

Awesome prayer for interesting times. And I LOVE the Obama Facts widget on the right side of your blog. Classic.

Humor may be our best defense. It and irony, if I'm not being redundant, works for Rush. I am a little worried because the N word can only be used by Ns, maybe black humor will only be licensed to black humorists. Yes, pessimistic and cynical: I've tried their opposites and they don't work.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
