I recalled those words this morning as I walked my daughter to school. I was too young to vote and didn’t really know what they meant at the time. I was in high school and hope was limited to easy exams and cute girls.

It is a beautiful autumn morning. The sun lit up the trees that were already burning with autumn leaves. I know that history will be made and I understand the hope and promise wrapped up in those words: morning in America. I understand what drove that previous landslide political victory and know I’ll see a similar one in a few hours.

Apropos

Remember remember
the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason
why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot…

Apropos for this election season. If we have the same questionable election results, the way we have in the last two presidential elections, it might not be totally out of the question for a few thousand Guy Fawkes masks to show up on the steps of Congress on Nov 5, 2008.
