I just heard someone singing a beautiful rendition of the national anthem. Why is it that I felt the sudden urge to weep with grief? Is it the fact that the nation is not the place that I had thought it was when I was a kid? Is it the fact that the patriots who fought and died to found this nation are spinning in their graves?
I don't know, but the wave of sorrow that washed over me was enough where I was glad that I was sitting down when it happened.
Gods, I hope election day doesn't bring a complete disaster. I hold little hope for it all, though.
