This is my very personal response to the election this year. I just hope that everyone who has a similar reaction doesn't give up.
Whether or not Donald Trump was the person you want to win, you have a responsibility to keep him in check. Stay up to date on Washington affairs. Contact your representatives in the Senate and the House and let them know what you think about a proposed bill. Get to know your state senators and representatives in the assembly. Know your local elected officials. Voting is a great way to get your voice heard in government, but it's not the only way.
It's YOUR government, so do everything you can to make sure it's the government that YOU want.
