May this year be different.
May you find yourself with the best candidate chosen, peacefully.
May you find yourself empowered by the change in power, not derailed.
May your public servants act like public servants, and not follow the example set for them by colonizers, slave owners, and US appointed dictators. May your leaders lead, not leave. May they give, not take. May your elected president be lifted high by the will of all the people, so that he or she might set the nation on the right track.
My fingers are crossed, candles lit, prayers given.
