This election process has been unprecedented. The most negative part of it has been the surging divisiveness which reached almost epidemic proportions during this race for the presidency.
It’s over for some who feel the unthinkable has happened. It’s just beginning for others, represented by the sweeping of red across the political map of our country. Fear of the unknown can be paralyzing but we must all agree on the importance of much-needed change in our government on so many levels.
As would be expected, social media is awash with comments from both sides and the projections of “no second term”, “no pity party” would have been directed at whichever candidate won this election. The deluge of debate will continue long past this and many days ahead.
It won’t be easy, just has it hasn’t been for the current leader of the free world. We live in treacherous times. While this election may be about the performance and policies of our government, truly, it is about each of us, our lives, our families and the future of all who follow behind.
From the beginning, this campaign was about voting for the lesser of two evils, plain and simple. The people of our great country have made that choice and there are no further options other than for everyone to move forward beyond the anger and disillusionment…and pray.
Our government… teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. ~Louis Brandeis
