I learned a new German word today: Vereidigung = Inauguration.
It’s been powerful to watch it on CNN in my living room. I am 6000 miles from home right now and in a way I felt even more “home” than if I’d been in California, probably driving my car to work or something instead of actually watching it.
It’s an exciting time in the world because shit is definitely fucked up but there is still hope on a global sense, if for no other reason in that technology allows us to see hope from all over the world. There is hope. That is what we are inaugurating today, hope. It’s been a long time since there was that collective feeling around the world, right?
