Grief

I am one of the, by latest count, 59,755,284 that voted for Hillary Clinton.  I am in the majority, which would count for something in a true democracy.

I agree with Donald Trump, who tweeted in 2012, "The Electoral College is a disaster for a democracy."  Truly ironic, circa 2016. 

The current disaster leaves the United States with a future President who came across during the election process as:

 Misogynistic
Racist
Homophobic
Xenophobic
Islamophobic

Tax-dodging
Financially irresponsible
Entitled
Tempermental

Disrespectful to a Muslim Gold Star family, a disabled reporter, Mexican men, every woman ever who does more than appear at his side in silent, ornamental fashion.

A disaster, but, yet again, we have to move forward with reality, no matter how dark and terrifying, on January 20, 2017.

For now, I grieve.
