I am heartbroken.
It’s bigger than a Donald Trump presidency, though. Much bigger.
I can’t wrap my head around the hate in this country. I don’t understand it. So much hate and divisiveness. Bigotry. Narcissism.
Us versus them.
But we are all us—and we are all them. How is it that half of this country can’t see that?
I held my daughter at midnight last night and I cried. What kind of future will this leave for our children? This man has no respect for women or minorities. He doesn’t “believe” in global warming. He wants to take away the legal protections that marriage provides to thousands of families like mine.
Even worse, the bigotry has been given a megaphone. It’s mob mentality. They feed off of each other as they spew hate toward those of us who follow a different path in life.
Today, I am tired and hurting.
Tomorrow, I ready myself for four years of battle.
