R.E.M. in Santiago last night:
(“I Believe,” from one of my favorite R.E.M. albums, the whole of which is very fitting today)
Yesterday, I voted for change, and today I am inspired, excited and full of hope for our country. As I poured my coffee, I found myself thinking about what I could specifically do to get involved in what lies ahead.
As one inspiring man was quoted as saying in our local paper, “I hope everybody can say, â€˜What can I do?’ instead of â€˜What do I get?‘”
