I grieve because somehow, a person who is the epitome of negativity, greed, misogyny, racism, and predatory behavior is our president elect, and I can not be happy about this. I can't even be in acceptance yet.
For now, grief is where its at. It doesn't mean I am giving in to the darkness of my mood, nor giving up my life force to the darkness. Feeling grief means I am fiercely in love with my country, and I feel that my country is severely challenged by this development.
I do not mean to offend anyone who voted for this person. However, I do send out my heart -felt condolences to all who are also in shock and grief. Feeling your pain as well.
We still have a lot to do. We still have a light within us. We still have love.
