George Washington’s Farewell Address: Heed it. Mr President Elect? The American people? Me? It’s interwoven, along with liberty, into the very ligaments of our beings.

Hope-Monger In-Chief. Thank you, President Obama. Please listen and be inspired, Mr. President-Elect.

(I hope President-Elect Donald Trump listened and that President Obama’s words inspire the better angels that hover ’round him to hold sway.)

My hope for this country and the world? Let’s find Common Ground. (It can’t be totally salted and burned!) This photo shows the reason(s) for my ardent wish.
