To see (and know) that so many people chose to vote for hate is absolutely saddening and terrifying. To see that this man has repeatedly made sexist and racist comments and people still voted for him is shocking. Let us not forget about the comments he made towards immigrants, the LGBT community, veterans, and disabled people. To see that this is the man that many people chose to vote for is incredibly scary.
To those who are currently in fear for their families, friends, country, and even themselves...I am so sorry and please know that I am here for you. There are many people who are here for you. I stand with you.
Below are some awesome blog posts that I came across:
- Cheshire Kat's blog
- Land of Marvels' blog
- Jordyn from The Fairy Princess Diaries
- Tay from The Daily Tay
- Myra from That Girl Myra

Today, I have noticed that here is so much sadness, fear, confusion, frustration, and anger, but let's not forget that there is so much love and hope still around.
Until next time...
