“If we are strong, our strength will speak for itself. If we are weak, words will be no help.” -John F. Kennedy
No matter who would have won the vote, with either of the two biggest candidates, we were bound to venture into new waters, whether it be the First Woman or the celebrity business man. One thing is clear: we as a nation are ready for a change. The biggest problem, aside from having to live with each other, is pinpointing a change we can all agree on. We need a change that doesn’t currently seem achievable because we don’t know exactly what kind we need, what we can agree on, and what we can live with.
More than anything, we must be the change we wish to see in the world. You know how hard it is to change yourself. How can you expect others to change, but not yourself? If you wish for all this anger and hatred to stop, then don’t say anything of the sort and don’t provoke people. Spread love. We could all use a hug these days. In fact, I go home and hug my husband everyday. It makes me feel sooo much better.
Change is here, whether we have chosen it or not. If you look back through history and the fact that our flag still stands, we as Americans have always risen to the occasion and stood strong. It may take a little time to get there and although I think we have lost our way a little bit, we will find our way back and we will be stronger than ever.
The next four years are going to be interesting, to say the least.
“There never were two opinions alike in all the world, no more than two hours or two grains: the most universal quality is diversity.” -Montaigne
