Mending The Flag
Norman Rockwell

After eight years of calculated and brazen destruction of all that this flag represents, it is a joy to see it all behind us, and have hope that we can return to a more sane and pro-American tone.

We have heard lots of promises, and today we see whether those words will be turned into action. Many of us are cautiously optimistic, and based on (soon to be) President Trump's nominees, I think we can be confident of solid management, and maybe even rollback of many of the more egregious actions of his predecessor.

Is it too much to hope for a president who will fight hard for a return to the founding principles of this country? Probably, but as long as we start down that road, I'll be happy.

[Of course it had to be Rockwell. I couldn't think of anyone else!]
