Well it’s the day after the day after the day after the tumultuous election.  What will this legacy be?  Will democracy survive:  We can only watch and hope.  As the French Revolution Army of the People said, “Allons, enfants de la Patrie, le jour de gloire est arrive!”  In English,

Arise, children of the Fatherland
The day of glory has arrived
Against us tyranny’s
Bloody banner is raised
Do you hear, in the countryside
The roar of those ferocious soldiers?
