The flag has been flying proudly from the front porch of The House on the Hill all day. Our country might be in turmoil, but we’re still Americans, still patriotic, and we still owe so much to the men and women who have served this great nation.
Since it’s Friday night, and it’s been a very long, trying, challenging, and confusing week, I decided I would leave the basement bunker to open up the Think Tank for my fellow Modern Philosophers.
There’s so much to talk about, so much to debate, and so much planning for the future that needs to begin immediately.
This Hopeless Romantic might wallow when it comes to affairs of the heart, but when the issue at hand is America’s future, I’m all about moving forward immediately.
So rather than overloading social media with our complaints, fears, and plans for emigration, let’s gather in a safe place and share our Deep Thoughts about what the next step is because life needs to continue.
Are you with me, Modern Philosophers? Tonight’s session of The Friday Night Think Tank has been called to order!
This week’s topic: What’s next for America?
There are so many paths we can take right now as a nation, and who’s to say which one is correct? Some might say that we chose our path on Election Day when we made Donald Trump the next President of the United States.
Others would argue that the election was just another step in a journey down a path that has yet to be chosen.
So what do you think is next for the country? Should we just enjoy the last days of the Obama Presidency and the Holiday Season, then worry about the future after President Trump takes the Oath of Office?
Is life really going to change so dramatically? Or will the excitement of the election eventually wear off and life go back to normal? Or is it inevitable that things will change drastically in a nation ruled over by a man who promised to build a wall?
I posted this photo with a comment about how time travelers from two movie franchises were working together to make sure that the results of the election didn’t lead to the end of civilization.
Of course, when I took the photo, I honestly thought that Hillary Clinton was going to win in a landslide.
Assuming for a moment that Doc Brown and The Terminator are not available to correct any false steps we take in the coming months, what do we do next?
America will survive. Just how will it change? How will we adapt? Can we remain one nation under the flag that flies proudly from my porch? Or has irreparable damage been done to the United States?
I’m eager to read your Deep Thoughts on this one. Remember, this is a safe place. Bullies will not be tolerated, nor will harsh language or hatred.
Let the healing begin tonight in the Friday Night Think Tank…
