This election brings hope

Wow. I almost feel hopeful again. Hopeful like I felt a long time ago during the early Clinton years. Hopeful of change, of progression, of growth, of care. Hopeful of equality, fairness, "a place for all at the table." I was so cautious this election to not get overly committed to any one race or issue, having felt so burned after Measure 36's passage here in Oregon. But a woman speaker of the house? Wow. Change is in the air. Gives me even more reason to be excited to be here right now and in the coming four days, hearing and connecting with many of the nation's leaders in the glbtq community. And yes, peeps, I'm even a presenter. Creating change, indeed.

Yes. I'm hopeful about change, too. Cautiously optimistic.

Brava to you for putting yourself out there to actively work for change, instead of just whining about everything that's wrong (like some people I could name).

I hope the presentation goes (or went) well.
