A couple of quotes that feel appropriate…
I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.
The best is yet to come.
We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.
-Woodrow T. Wilson
How long this upbeat, hopeful mood can be maintained throughout the country remains to be seen… but right now it’s a pretty amazing thing.
