Well, the day has arrived.
Whether we like it or not, whether we voted for him or not, the president-elect officially becomes POTUS today. This is definitely a tough pill to swallow especially for those of us who never imagined how someone who has made so many insulting and derogatory comments could ever hold the highest position in our nation.
I could probably sit here and list all the reasons he shouldn’t be president. At the same time, I could probably share a number of reasons why his being elected shouldn’t surprise us in the least bit.
But I’m not going there. I’d rather not re-live those trying days after the election results were in. All the sadness, all the shock, all the arguments, all the confusion, all the fear, all the ugliness are things I don’t want to experience again.
Instead, I simply want to share some things you could do today to get your mind off the events happening in Washington, D.C. Even just for a little while.
And if none of the above work, remember the words of our great 44th President Barack Obama:
“I believe in this country. I believe in the American people. I think we’re going to be okay.”
So do whatever you need to get through this day. Be sad and upset if you’re fearful of what’s going to happen next. Rejoice if you’re excited about the new change coming. Do this today.
Tomorrow let’s remember we are all the same, regardless of race, religion or gender, and work together to make living in this country great for everyone.
