Good Morning, America…

I’m not going to berate you, America. You had a tough night. Whether you feel your party won or lost, everyone is in a state of shock. You don’t need more advice, you don’t need a pity party and you do NOT need to be told to flee your homeland. Just take care of yourself, remember that the future isn’t written yet and anything can happen. I understand your fears. Truly, I do. I woke up at 4am to watch and text with my American father and immigrant mother living in Florida. It was not the result we had hoped for but things happen. Now is the time to heal and try to come back together as a nation.

 

Be kind to yourself, America. You deserve it.
