Well, I guess democracy can sometimes be messy, painful and strange. I couldn’t watch the coverage anymore. I think both political parties somehow failed their constituents and focused on what they needed to do to win an election. While that’s important of course, they probably didn’t do enough to gauge the anger and disillusionment of those that they don’t represent anymore, or perhaps just barely represented.
It’s just a crazy place when someone who preaches hate, lies and anger can win. I don’t understand. But I hope American will figure out what they need to do to pull together after this election. Tonight I’ll say a quiet prayer for you and then I’ll have a drink for you too. Good luck my friends.
