Goodness gracious I am livid.
My good friend Janelle from Renegade Mama just taught an amazing class, and let us know that we should sit on impassioned writing for at least 24 hours before publishing. Today, I’m probably going to make her mad.
I want to stay respectful, even though horrible thoughts and feelings are bubbling against my being right this moment.
I want to say that I know that everything will be okay.
I want to say that my children will be okay.
I want to say that my friends will be okay.
I can’t say those things, because at this moment, I don’t believe those things.
We all know that history has a way of repeating itself. I’m a STRONG believer in Christ. I know that no man is the be all and end all for my life. But it certainly feels that way.
I’m not sure how America can consider itself great after the election results. We aren’t just a Christian country. We aren’t just a white country. We aren’t just an educated country. Part of what makes America so great is the fact that we’re made up of so many different people. PEOPLE. There are people at stake here, and I feel like so many people were forgotten.
Did you see the SNL sketch with Tom Hanks on Jeopardy. Did you see how closely his life correlated with the black folk that he was competing against? This is what the reality in America is. We’re all very much the same, but only SOME of us are too conceited to think so.
The folks that want us to stop making everything a race thing, won last night. Congratulations to you. Congratulations to your Republican led House and Republican led Congress. Congratulations to the new Supreme Court Justices that you will more than likely LOVE when they are nominated by the new President of the United States.
I ABSOLUTELY think that the President-Elect was right when he said that uneducated people love him. I don’t think that this only applies to those who didn’t attend a four year college or university. I think it applies to those who don’t really understand what they did when they elected him into office.
I feel like half of America figuratively stood on a bridge after a bad relationship and screamed “BURN IT ALL DOWN!” and they did. America is burning, and you know who is going to take the blame? Not the ones who lit the match, but the ones who burn in the fire.
My heart is hurting. I keep wanting to wallow in self pity, but the amazing thing is I serve the same God that so many people used in their election of this man, and I know without a shadow of a doubt that He knows all. I wish that he’d give me a PEEK, because…
I know that life isn’t over, but if you think that the fringe is going to go away quietly, think again. Our country isn’t about to be made great again. The greatness was sucked out for me, last night.
America, congrats on your 45th President. I hope you don’t have buyers remorse, because I certainly didn’t the last eight years.
