I, like many of you, watched the news yesterday, horrified and angry. And as a writer it’s easy to rant and rave here about what happened at the Capitol, in Washington. Yet I’m not going to do that. There are plenty of news sources already analyzing the events.
I’d like to offer a different view. It was awful, beyond words, yet I can easily see the US as being similar to Star Trek Voyager. We are a ship (a nation) with an advanced society, that has lost our way, facing unbelievable challenges, like a crippling disease.
Sometimes the struggles are within ourselves. And yet we face each incredible challenge and move forward traveling at the speed of light. We did that this past November fighting for what was right. And Joe Biden won by the largest margin since FDR. Did you know that?
And now this week we did it in Georgia. For the first time in the history of Georgia, they will have an African American pastor as a senator. And the son of Jewish immigrants as the other senator. Ain’t that something?
Yep, that’s our America! And moving forward, working on getting home at the speed of light. And one day, our Captain will be a woman, just like on Voyager!
And the Klingons? Oh those are the angry, war-like people…….And they always loose. Always. Violence always loses.

Thank you Pam! I hope they remove him before he is supposed to leave. They are working on it. Peace and blessings my friend
Yes, you are right, but they always come back too. They get defeated, and then three episodes later they are there. I remember watching those old episodes and thinking, “Oh, yeah, there are those damn Klingons again. Don’t they ever give up?” I really enjoyed reading this post. Very creative and insightful.
You are so right about that! Thank you for your awesome comments! Peace and blessings to you
I was smiling over my whole face when I learned that Raphael Warnock was elected. Two weeks, Nico, and the senseless acts of deficence and dangerous stupidity will come to an end.
Thank you Erika! Yes Raphael is a good one! He was the pastor of John Lewis, a famous Civil Rights leader who passed away. Peace and blessings my friend.
There is truly a wonderful dawn on the horizon. Thank you and peace and blessings to you too!
