Now is not the time to give up, now is the time to fight.
I am so ashamed of this part of America’s history, but I still have hope and so much love for humanity. One night, and one hateful man, one hateful movement, cannot take that away from me. Please don’t let it take it away from you.
Today, I comfort. Tomorrow, I begin the fight for a better future.

We know that Trump is racist and sexist and homophobic, not to mention unqualified. We know that Hillary is a liar and could very well be indicted. And no matter who wins the election, that consciousness is still a part of our mental fabric. Our voices demanding someone better weren’t heard. This election is one of reaction, instead of action. And that will always hurt.
