My heart goes out to all of my fellow U.S. citizens. Today is a difficult, painful, shocking day. I posted the following as my Facebook status and I want to share it with all of you. It was one of my immediate thoughts when I heard the election results this morning. Under tears and messages to my loved ones, it still holds true. I fly home on Monday I and can’t wait to hold everyone tightly.
If I ever have a daughter, I have no idea how I am going to explain to her how an intelligent, qualified woman lost the presidency to a racist, sexist, sad excuse for a man in 2016.
All I can hope is that as I try to explain the injustices of this country, that I can also say to her, “But we never stopped fighting.”
Let us go forth with strength and love, my friends.
