Today I felt a range of emotions. Fear, awe, pride, sadness, exhaustion.
If the President-Elect really is who I've researched him to be, then I am very anxious about the future. His ideas and plans for this country are radical and so far left he's almost off the map.
I have a feeling, the majority of people who voted for him think he will govern down the middle. He won't. Don't be surprised when it gets painful and ugly.
This country has made it through plenty of presidents with problems, incompetent people around them and horrible policies. We seem to always recover and move on. Let's hope we can do so again if the next four years go terribly wrong.
I'm proud that as Americans we can transfer power in a peaceful manner and that we can disagree with our government without fear.
How is my husband feeling about the outcome? He bought a Mossberg shotgun on his lunch hour today.....hmmmmmmm. (Marge Simpson sound.)
