feeling sad + optimistic at the same time

this Friday will be rough. the only  reason i am not crying is because i know people help make positive changes when they don't like something or when they are uncomfortable. the new president of the united states will make me uncomfortable to live in the USA. i don't like the idea of him as president.

i know that love trumps hate. that doesn't mean that i will protest his presidency or instigate arguments with people i know over politics. no, it means that we all need to come together, not just as Americans, but as people. we need to recognize that we are all people, and a new leader wont change that. we cant let a new leader make us angry and rash and judgmental.

WE NEED TO UNITE AGAINST A COMMON ENEMY (not donald trump, but): HATRED AND THE DARK DECISIONS WE MAKE WHEN WE ARE FEARFUL AND ANGRY.

i am not telling you to look on the bright side and i am not saying that i like the president-elect. what i am saying is that i want us to use this united passion to create good things in the world, and to make good change.
