Wishing My American Friends A Safe And Peaceful Inauguration Day

I would like to convey my sincerest hope for a peaceful transition of power and healing for the nation of the United States. Take care, my friends, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”
― Abraham Lincoln,

Born and raised on a farm near Brockville, Ontario, Mark Bierman's childhood consisted of chores, riding horses, snowmobile races across open fields, fishing trips to a local lake, and many other outdoor adventures. He was also an avid reader of both fiction and non. Transitioning towards adulthood also meant moving from the farm and into large urban areas that introduced this country boy to life in the big cities. After a short stint as a private investigator, he moved into the role of Correctional Officer, working at both Millhaven Institution and Kingston Penitentiary, until it closed.

  1. Very nice post and I add my sentiments to yours also wishing the US a great new day beginning with Joe Biden. The only thing that I could not understand was why the inauguration was not done in English and Spanish as Spanish-speaking people constitute a large enough percentage of the US population and as well a very important one that sealed the win for Joe Biden.

  2. Thank you, Mark. That is what I hope also for my country, a country that I love deeply and always will love. There have been many hurts on both sides but forgiveness changes things. I hope that we learn to forgive and move on.
