It’s been seven days since we got the news that was heard around the world! Since then, countless videos, photos, and stories documented fellow Americans’ response to the announcement that the Biden/Harris ticket was the projected winner in Pennsylvania. Families, friends, and those who’ve never met took to Facebook, email, Twitter, and more to share their reflections on meaning of these results to us as a nation and to the world.
We continue to be subject to high drama. It’s challenging, at times, not to be consumed by the speculation about what President Trump might do in response to his loss. Will he concede at some point, as has been done in every previous presidential election? Will he continue to wage legal battles to postpone the inevitable official declaration that Biden is the president elect when the electoral votes are finally counted on January 6th? The questions are out there, and they seem to be endless.
Many of us in Washington County have found relief in the writings of a few reasoned analysts who distill all of the noise and distraction into clear and rational words of encouragement for the days ahead. See our resources section for links.
