My Beautiful Dark Twisted America

How am I going to tell my son in the morning that the smart woman he was rooting for had lost to a man who mocked the disabled? How do we get to this? No matter how smart a woman is, she is never going to be able to compete against a man. Bullies, sexists, and racists still can be a president. America will face its darkest days ahead, but let’s just keep move forward. I did my part, but the country has spoken so we just have to live with it for four more years. I don’t know if I still have the strength and stomach to keep up with politics. It is appalling. Let’s just hope for the best for our future. I am closing out my chapter on politics and focusing on something else.
