It’s Gonna Take A Miracle

There are four days left in the term of the worst president in American history. While the nation reels from the worst healthcare disaster in a century, festering due to the lethal combination of his lack of interest and incompetence, our chief executive is spending his final days in office collecting money from his fellow criminals seeking pardons and pushing through more federal executions in the past six months than America has conducted in the past six decades. It’s all about priorities

Believers in the big lie – that elections in the United States are not free and fair, that they are tainted by massive voter fraud, and that the 2020 election was stolen – are calling for armed protests across the country and at the Biden/Harris inauguration. What could possibly go wrong?

Yet, the glimmers of hope are starting to shine a little brighter in the darkness. I know three people who have received the vaccine, and two more who have their appointments on the calendar.

Time will tell if we have reached a tipping point. Maybe the next four days will not be soaked in blood. Maybe the next four years will mark the beginning of a new era for our country and world, one built on the truth and (do we dare to believe?) love. It’s gonna take a miracle. If we have learned anything in the last 244 years in this country, it’s that miracles do happen.

Loving you so
I was too blind to see
You letting me go
But now that you've set me free

It's gonna take a miracle
Yes, it's gonna take a miracle
To make me love someone new
'Cause I'm crazy for you

Oh, didn't you know
It wouldn't be so easy
You letting me go
I could have told you that

It's gonna take a miracle
Yes, it's gonna take a miracle
To make me love someone new
'Cause I'm crazy for you

Oh, now I know I can't forget about you
I'm gonna try to show how much
You're turning me around, destroying me
I'll never be the same anymore

You must realize
You took your love and left me
Quite by surprise
You can be sure that now

It's gonna take a miracle
Yes, it's gonna take a miracle
To make me love someone new
'Cause I'm crazy for you
