Today I am devastated that a white supremacist, known racist, known sexist, and reality TV show guru has been elected president over an extremely qualified woman. This morning I headed out to get coffee, to commiserate and process the news with friends.
Being upset won't change anything. I've got to figure out how to channel my anger and outrage on the behalf of all who are discriminated against--who now have our federal government legally validating the hatred that is thrown at them daily--into something useful. I don't have a lot of power, and I sure don't have a lot of influence, but I'm gonna' figure out how to use what I've got to enact the change we need.
