This is a horrifyingly sad time for America. We have just elected a sexist, racist, anti-LGBTQ+ monster as our President. That man goes by the name of Donald Trump. And sadly, we now must live in fear: fear that he is going to do something extremely stupid, fear that he is going to treat others with the utter disrespect that he already has been, and fear that we are now more unsafe than ever. I am sad, I am shocked and I am not alone. I don't understand how this happened. I don't understand how people like him and support him, although I still respect my friends and family who do, I just strongly disagree. I don't understand. This is the new reality. I am sad. But there is something I do know. WE CAN STILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE. WE ARE STRONG. WE ARE UNITED. WE WILL WIN. LOVE WILL WIN. For the time being, until we can successfully impeach this monster from office, here are some things we as people with hearts and minds and love in us can do to "make america great." (because, I'm sorry, but your ideas are horrible, Mr.Trump). Love always wins. Love is great. LOVE TRUMPS HATE.
