Today was a hard one for me.
I did expect to wake up to different results & while I do respect opinions & views that differ with mine - I still find the whole thing baffling.
My brain can't fully process...anything.
I don't believe walls are a solution. Walls are easy; building complex & mutually beneficial relationships is difficult &...presidential.
I believe America has always been great. A lot of other countries are great too & yep, there are a lot of parts of the US that are not so great - "great" is too easy - we need to be striving for better.
I feel like "easy" won today.
I feel like hate won today.
I feel like "because I have a lot of money, I can do whatever I want - but, oh! I can also totally relate to you" (ha!) won.
I am also a little relieved for Clinton because at least (maybe) she can have a bit of reprieve from all this craziness. It was also very clearly documented that if she won, she would be berated for the next four years (go, team...sigh). And I do believe that reprieve for a woman like Clinton can only mean good things, better things for this country's future.
Do I think she'll ever run again? Probably not. But that doesn't mean she will not continue to fight for children, women, families & be a power of influence.
It ain't over!
And I really need a bagel, stat!
