But who knows, right?

Look, we all have PTSD from 2016 and we have all become experts on the Electoral College map, swing states, and polling in the past four years.

I wish there was something inspiring or hopeful or insightful I could say, but I have nothing.

Instead, just know that the world is watching and waiting with us:

And keep hoping for the future.

The kids singing this lovely cover of “Landslide” back in 2009 are now all old enough to vote. Fingers crossed they all did so today. (h/t BoingBoing)
