My tidbit on this election
So two days ago, the United States elected a new President, Donald Trump. He was not my pick. He was not a lot of American’s ideal candidate. He wasn’t even the majority’s choice. But he won, fair and square, and now we must move on.
When I say move on, I do not mean lay down and accept our fate. I mean move on from this setback and progress. Fight the regression that will be attempting to silence us from this day forward. I took yesterday to mourn. I was hurt, I felt vulnerable, as many Americans did. But today, I am angry. Today I fight. Today I take a stand for inclusion, for acceptance, for a better America. No one should feel unsafe in our country, and now that the majority of the population does, we need to channel that fear and anger into something productive. Do not accept your fate. Fight for a better future, spread the love, and be mindful and aware of exclusion and work against it.
