The Day After

Donald Trump is the new president of the United States of America.
If you are a Muslim, a person of any color other than white, LGBTQ, a person with special needs or a woman (or any one of a hundred groups that Trump has “othered”) you probably have every right to have a sense of foreboding, a feeling of unease and fear and uncertainty after what you have heard for the last 16 months. What happened last night is scary to most thinking, sane, empathetic, rational human beings. How should we process this and how do we all proceed together? Step one is to realize and admit what went wrong, who we are truly dealing with now, and how the world came to this place in time.

Step two is to let the resistance begin. Get educated, get involved, network, work. It won’t get fixed overnight, but hey good stuff is worth fighting for, and over.
