Like many folks, I was surprised and disappointed by the result of Tuesday's U.S. elections. I've been in a worried daze since then, not quite knowing how to process it and not knowing what to do next.
Thankfully there are many smarter people than me that have been able to both articulate the feelings that I could not, and give me strong ideas about how I can make the world a better place moving on from this.
Here are some pieces that I am grateful for from the last couple of days:
I must also stand with and stand up for the people in my life who, simply by being who they are, are threatened by the oppressive ideals that served as the GOP's platform.
To my friends and family who are women, LGBTQ, trans, people of color, profiled because of your religion, or in other ways Beyond the Binary - I am here for you. I will be here with you. Things are scary. I want to help.
