The Day After

November 9th, 2016

Just a brief post, as a coda to my pessimistic thoughts from a few days ago:

I didn’t sleep much last night and I’m sure many others didn’t either. My feelings on the result of the election are shock, and a real fear for the future. We are embarked on a great experiment and no one can say where it will go. It’s my hope that the Republican administration, when they gain control of all three branches of the federal government in January, will remember to respect the rights of individuals, our personal freedoms, and our shared environment. This is my hope, though I fear for those on the margins, and those who will soon lose their healthcare insurance. I hope my pessimism is misplaced. May it all turn out better than expected.

    I could not agree with you more. I take pride in my calm demeanor, but what happened last night has got me mad enough to put me into the kind of dark mood I haven’t experienced in a long time. This country prides itself on being a champion for human rights–HUMAN rights. That includes Blacks, Latinos, Native Americans, immigrants, and members of the LGBTQ community. We would be wise to remember that; otherwise, this country is in trouble.
