The Morning After
I'm writing this on Tuesday afternoon, so I do not yet know what the results will be.
A little while age I was watching the news. A reporter spoke to an elderly couple on their way to vote. The wife was an adamant Trump supporter, and the husband was equally adamant in favor of Clinton. They both seemed a little angry. The reporter asked them if they still loved each other. Yes, they did. They kissed, and the wife shrugged, saying, "What are you gonna do?"
What we should do, win or lose, is treat each other decently. Look for common ground. Continue to work for what is right. Move forward with as much dignity and respect as possible.
Hate destroys us. Love can help us heal.
