Woke up in a haze. Still trying to wrap my head around what just happened. So many emotions. I feel like I’m going through the 5 stages of grief & loss. I’m not quite sure I’ll ever get to the final step: acceptance.
How so many people can support someone so full of hate is truly terrifying. I’m ashamed, embarrassed & disgusted with what is happening. Despite all of this, I still have hope. I have to. We have to. We have to continue to fight for the rights of so many who have been, and will continue to be treated so unfairly. We also have to continue to fight for this planet. So much is at stake.
I’m trying my best to stay positive. I’m trying to believe that good will overcome evil and we will move forward, despite all that has happened, to a place of love and acceptance.
“No matter what happens, the sun will rise in the morning.” – President Barack Obama
Hopefully, we will also rise.
