A Day For History


There is nothing I can say that hasn't been said a million times all over the world. But, sitting here on my couch in Bangkok, I am completely overwhelmed with the gravity and importance of what happened in the United States today.

And even though I live on the other side of the world, I have a keen interest in what is happening back in the US. But over the past few years, I have become more and more disillusioned with the path that my country has taken. And during this last election, I have been disgusted with the tactics taken by some to divide the electorate, to sow fear and uncertainty, to claim that some Americans are "more American" than others.

But now, this is all behind us. Finally, a real change has come. I, along with the rest of the world, am again hopeful for the future. Hopeful that the US can repair ties with our friends around the world. Hopeful that new friends can be made. Hopeful that the world can make progress on the environment, and on the fight against disease and poverty. Hopeful that the world will continue to progress and improve.

Now the real work starts.
