To counter my dread over the election, I returned to Lincoln's writings.
Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and First and Second Inaugural Addresses stand inviolate against today's degraded political discourse.
History again calls upon the nation. Will we take another step toward the republic Lincoln envisioned? Or will we succumb to the fog machine of lies and hatred?
Along with Lincoln, I turn to Doris Day. "Que Sera Sera."
Many believe the election could herald the start of another Civil War.
I hope our better angels prevail, as Lincoln appealed for in his first inaugural address.
