I can’t bear to watch Donald Trump take the oath of office, and have no interest in listening to his speech. Still, it also feels necessary and appropriate to find some way of marking the transition, and remembering the ideals of American democracy that are supposed to be reflected at these critical junctures. So, we are hosting an small gathering at the time of the inauguration to read/listen to speeches that reflect on the deep values of democracy, of consent-of-the-governed, of the nobility of service, reflected in the best transitions of power, while also sharing in each other's company. Since it is mid-day, we are also asking folks to bring a potluck dish to share.
