Yesterday history was made. Yesterday Joe Biden nominated Rachel Levine as the Assistant Health Secretary. Social Conservatives are... upset because she is transgender. They have a problem which only time will resolve. You see, they like to view themselves as a rock, rigid and unmoving. They believe that makes them strong. They don't understand that Rachel Levine is like a blade of grass, and while that blade of grass grows and becomes a field of grass over time that rock is slowly being worn down, eventually becoming nothing more than sand. This is how time works.
And, of course, today Joe Biden will be sworn in as President of United States of America. His predecessor wants a military send off with a twenty one gun salute which, unfortunately, will not be pointed at him. Fifteen Executive Orders are set to be signed within hours after Uncle Joe is sworn in. I understand Kamala Harris, the first female person of color Vice President, has more than enough pens ready and waiting. Things are not going to be easy in this divided nation, but at least we can now see a path forward. We are now and have always been a country of Immigrant Centrists. This is what has made us strong. The ability to include left leaners and right leaners is our heritage. There is no strength in division. The weaker side will always fail. We are also the country of change. Evolution is upon us. The secret to success is not fighting it, rather understanding and accepting it is on our path through this continually changing unknown wilderness. The past is unchangeable, so we learn from it. The future is ours to build. Welcome to this Brand New Day.
