The peaceful transfer of power is a hallmark of our nation. That will happen in less two hours — and about 36 miles from where I'm sitting.

It's not the transfer of power that I was hoping for, but that's not the point. It's a transfer, and it's happening. After it's complete, we can move forward, doing what we must to protect the nation, which has weathered wars and riots and a near-fatal split. 

I remind myself that eight years ago others were as worried and disappointed as I am now. I might think I have more cause for concern (and I do!), but I imagine those folks would disagree with me. 

Perspective — I'm working on it today. And I will be for quite some time.
