The most important election in my 60+ years is over, thank goodness. My candidate lost the election, even though she is winning the vote by 1.5M votes.
So why this post? We as a community need healing. I see it in Chat most nights.
It is hard for me to understand, why many supported the other candidate. Everyone had reasons for why they voted. I am trying to understand their concerns. I need to understand and hear.
I am reaching out to everyone on URNA, listen more, try to find common ground, because we are a community. As a community, we have so much more in common than our differences.
I am not a sore loser, but I am fearful. Some of you need to understand that, just as I need to understand you wanted change. I am not alone in my fears. The DACA participants, muslims, brown skin people, the whole lbgt community!
Many are worried based on what was said, but also on the people President elect Trump is putting in place around him. As always, I try to hope for the best, but plan for the worst. Which brings me back to URNA.
I have joked about leaving. It was a joke! This is my country too, so sticking around. Comments like this are our ingrained "flight or fight" responce. It does not mean, someone offering to drive me to the Canadian border is ok, or if someone is fearful that they are unpatriotic.
That said, we have a strong democracy. It has survived tests of leadership before. Millions have died to protect and perserve our union. So please less rehtoric for now. As a doubter, please President Elect Trump prove me wrong. I so want to be wrong for the country and for me and my community.
So for now, lets be kind to one another, be kind even when we don't uinderstand. Pam
