Election Recovery

Anger won’t fix it.

Euphoria won’t last.

Even the best of humans will need forgiveness.

There are no deliverers and magic potions.

The only elixir for election hangover?

Courage.

Courage to look square in the face of our humanity

In whatever form it threatens

And ask for help.

And be help

Without whining

Without arrogance

Without animosity for winners or losers.

With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in…

Abraham Lincoln, March 4, 1865
