Hello, my fellow Americans.
How’s it going?
If you’re like me, you’re feeling really, really bad right now. Loss, despair, a pain in your chest. Walking around alone at night, feeling absolutely awful. Really bad. A horror-clown has just been elected president. A man who doesn’t seem to have any plans beyond simple self-aggrandizement, who will say or do anything to inflate his own self-importance.
At the end of the day, you’re probably asking this: What does this mean for America?
Well, I’ll tell you what it means.
It means that we’re not done yet.
This is not yet the America that we want it to be.
It means that we’ve still got a heck of a lot of work to do. No one said this was going to be easy.
So: make a list of priorities. Here’s mine:
- Human Rights
- Climate Change
- Nuclear Proliferation
Then—and this is the hard part—start doing something about them.
I’m going to try. I’ll let you know how it goes.
