It is a new thing...

I've cried more in the last 20 hours than I have in the last 8 years, but tears of joy this time, hope that we can - and will - begin again, in a more inclusive community of faith and justice, spirit and matter, working together for that new beginning.

This American-Australian has spent so much time since 2001 apologizing for America's narrow vision over these years, the loud parochial imperialism that's stealthily bedded down with the rich and mighty; and it's such a blessed relief that there now seems to be an opening for mercy, compassion, solidarity, even a possibility for peace in a vision of a new world. I am so proud that the country of my birth, that great ship of state, can turn around, make amends, repent and move towards a renewed vision of these United States as an agent of change and healing, a light to the nations; In this moment of time it seems the golden door is opening to a new beginning, and I am so proud!
