Today feels like a day a lot of people are dreading. There is so much anxiety and stress surrounding this election, more than any other before it.
I even have seen pictures of business's boarding up their storefronts for the imposing election results so that they won't get vandalized.
I mean really? Is this what our world has come to?
We don't like the results of something so we have to go out and destroy other peoples hard worked for lives.
What sense does that make.
Regardless of what side you voted for. We ALL need to come together.
Yes we have different views, different backgrounds, different opinions, and so on and so forth.
But, deep down I feel we all have the same goals and values.
We all want to live happy lives. We all want to live in a world that feels secure. We all want to be loved, be heard, be shown kindness and gratitude.
We just all go about it differently. And that's ok.
Our difference's it what makes this world great.
But, it's our coming together. It's our similarities is what will lead us into a new, and better future.
We are all the same. We are just different flavors. And who doesn't like different flavors of ice cream. Yet we still make many more combinations.
So why. When it comes to humans, we snarl at variety. Why do we want everyone to be like we are. That's no fun. It's not even entertaining to say the least.
I am imploring you to see the other side of your views. I am begging you to be ok with not getting what you want, but still working for it.
Because let's face it. If you are thinking that a new president is what will help change the course our country is on. YOU ARE DEAD WRONG!!!
We change it. You and me. We do it together. From the ground up. You cant have a strong sturdy house with a weak foundation. WE ARE THE FOUNDATION!!!
Regardless of the outcome. Regardless of your views and the different views of those around you. Take the person's hand next to you. Look them in the eye and tell them that WE got this. WE will get through this. WE will emerge on the other side battered and bruised, but together. And WE will stay together through think and thin. NOTHING will break us or separate us.
WE are the future. WE are the change. WE are what we need!
