Expensive United States,
I do know our relationship has been on the rocks currently — nicely, all the time. Regardless of our shortcomings, you’re nonetheless the one I name house. The previous 4 years have been tough, although not as tough as the start. After we met, I used to be 5 and also you have been 225. I fell in love together with your purple mountain majesties and your amber waves of grain. We didn’t have the healthiest of relationships firstly. Like once I feared my mother getting pulled over on her method to work would imply the tip of us. For those who have been anybody else, I’d’ve left. We overcame that.
I’ll all the time keep in mind scorching canine and beer in your birthday. And also you keep in mind mine. On November sixth, 2012, you gave me Obama’s second time period; on November sixth, 2018, you gave me AOC; on November sixth, 2020, you gave me Biden and Harris. We popped champagne within the streets. I shook my ass on the hood of James Franco’s automotive. For the primary time in a very long time, there was hope, and it was palpable. We go collectively like life and liberty.
Granted, you’re not good. Neither am I. You continue to need to make amends on your previous. In a manner, so do I. I’m attempting. We each nonetheless have room left to develop. I’ve received huge goals for us. I’ll retire to the New England countryside to jot down scripts, books, or no matter in a cabin by the lake overlooking a big oak tree. I promise by no means to take greater than I give and also you’ll attempt for an ideal union, ensuring every technology leaves this place higher than how they left it. We’ll each work towards perfection, understanding we’ll by no means obtain it, however there may be worth in attempting.
And so they’ll be people who root towards us. God is aware of they’ve tried to interrupt us aside. We don’t need to pay them any thoughts. Past all of the shouting and rhetoric, you and I are easy: a boy and his house.
