In about 36 hours we may know who our next president shall be. I pray it does not become a fiasco of 2000.
Whomever accepts the country’s charge, I trust like President John Adams wrote his wife upon his first night in the White House (November 2, 1800):
“I pray Heaven to bestow the best blessings on this house and all that shall hereafter inhabit. May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof.”
Today, the lyrics from the wonderful musical, LES MISERABLES seems to refresh me:
“One day more! At the barricades of freedom, tomorrow we’ll discover what our God in heaven has in store. One more dawn, one day more!”
