Trump Is My President

Donald Trump is the President of the United States and He is My President.

Trump Is My President
Gage Skidmore
Donald J. Trump is now my president.

I did not vote for him in the primaries.

I did not support him during his campaign.

I did not vote for him during the general election.

On January 20, 2017 during a peaceful transition of power that has a long and storied history here in the United States, he became my president. He will be my president for the next four years. That’s how it is. No amount of protests can change who Donald Trump is and I do not think they should for a multitude of reasons.

Donald Trump won because of the Electoral College. He won because of a system that was put in place long ago by people who were much smarter than I am and had lived through a time of political upheaval I cannot imagine. He legally won based on everything we know to be right and true in this country about government; our constitution. If that system can be cheated in order to put someone in power we feel to be more qualified, that system can be cheated to put someone in power that is less qualified. I feel that to be an ominous and dangerous precedent not at all worth exploring.

President Trump well and truly won the presidency and I fervently hope with every ounce of my being he will be one of our greatest presidents. He is now the leader of this country and his success is our success. If he is successful in solving our health care crisis, creating jobs, and solving immigration, then I will waste no time congratulating him on a job well done. We need all of those problems to be solved and I hope he can solve them for all of us.

More importantly, President Trump is but one of 45 men that have held the office of the President of the United States. Each one has brought with them their own personal stamp to the Oval Office. It’s not just President Trump that deserves our respect, it is also the people who have walked before him and have given their lives to serve our country. Not only do these men who were elected by their fellow citizens deserve our respect, but also their families who did not choose the life of public service. The Office of the President is special and all those who bear its seal deserve to be treated with the respect it is due, regardless of party affiliation or personal agendas.

Donald Trump is the President of the United States and as such, he has my utmost respect, my best wishes, and my prayers for a job well done. This does not mean I will not continue to seek justice or that I will not continue to speak truth to power when necessary. I will to the best of my ability. However, I will not delegitimize President Trump or the station he holds in the process.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
