The morning after.
What will happen on November 5th, 2008?
Your next door neighbor will still be your next door neighbor.
The other parents you see dropping off and picking up their kids will still be in front of you in the carloop.
The car that you always end up behind on your way to work will probably have the opposing party’s bumper sticker on it for a while longer.
The world will keep turning. The sun will rise and set. Co-workers, colleagues, friends and frenemies will still be around.
There was life before the election. It will resume. No more e-mails forwarded telling you how horrible one candidate is over the other. No more commercials. Just one nation under God with a new leader preparing to take office. And all the opinions offered up and disagreements that were had regarding the election won’t matter one little bit.
