For what change in yourself do you hope when President Biden takes office?

Mine: I want to feel less bitter, less angry, and free of wishing cruel things on people, irrespective of how evil they are.

I don't like many of the things I think; and never knew they were in me.

And what you said too.

7. If anyone has the fundamental decency in himself to channel Nelson Mandela...

...it would be Joe Biden.

I suppose I will try...try...out of respect for Mandela; perhaps though we will need truth and reconciliation committees.

I sorely miss truth.

Right now, I don't want any part of it, I must say. I want Trump and Co to die in prison.

I'm very, very bitter.

I don't like it, but I am.

2. Less anxiety about the future, more hope for our country and humanity, and I do not want to

think about what our government is doing on a daily basis, and yet we need major structural changes and very soon if we are to avoid a truly cataclysmic outcome for humanity.

3. I want to stop being afraid for my life each time I have a soreness in my throat

or when I cough.

The traitor has ruined our lives, and if we beat putin and remove the traitor, I am hopeful, if I am still alive, for better days ahead.

Good question though, and no I will never forgive or forget the people who supported this mass murder. Might be better off if I did but no way, cant do it.

9. I simply want to wake up every morning unafraid

of what fresh hell the day will bring with tweets and rank ratfuckery.
Everything else will be cake.

12. I just want to be able to sleep and actually rest again.

Apparently, post Trump I started talking in my sleep. Something I used to do when I was deeply stressed, such as when I'd lost a loved one. Since Covid I've been walking in my sleep, too. Wandering about doing weird stuff while I'm asleep. Lots of stuff is missing in my house and we assume I've moved it.

I don't take any sleep meds, or prescriptions, so this isn't a side effect of anything but stress.

I want to be able to drop my shoulders again and honestly relax.

14. I want to feel we will have a new beginning. Where we can look to the future with hope, not fear.

I hope this past 4 years will be a lesson for the younger generation, that who we have for leaders matter and their involvement matters. Not just the Office of President, but right down to city council.
