Gratitude: Democratic Process

A practice of discovering gratitude today seems difficult as DC was stormed, our democracy under duress. I watch as the house and senate vote, and possibly defy, the people's choices. Nancy Pelosi seems shaken reminding us that today was filled with drama and trauma. 

Opportunity for gratitude is recognizing that Americans are alert, paying close attention to what has been taken for granted. 

Final Note: Thankful for Pence taking his role professionally in the final hours. I was grateful for his stoicism after so much Trump craziness. 

We cannot take Democracy for granted.
