Democracy is a B

I have so so much to say this night as I can't sleep. But anger, frustration, and sadness make the words few.

There are so many things that make me proud to be a citizen of the United States. It is a place where we have safe and fair elections. We have a culture of innovation. We have a population of generous people.

But this year, I remember that the America I love isn't the 'real' America. The vast majority are not well educated, do not have passports, and do not truly love their black/brown neighbor as themselves. This America got the president that does, in fact, represent their values. Fear mongering, not bravery, won the day.

The outcome of this election breaks my heart but we can't let it break our spirit.
