For the next few months, things were eerie. But I took solace in the fact that the U.S. had the sympathy of most of the world. I reveled in the waving and bearing of the American flag.
But the world went back to its old ways, unfortunately. And now we have the pathetic O in the White House. And the lessons have seemed to have been forgotten.
But I can take solace in the decent people of the Tea Party movement. America always seems to find a way to rejuvenate itself.
