I’m not going to pretend to be disappointed in the election results, you all know I’m not. I’m disappointed in how divided this Country is. I’m disappointed in Donald Trump on twitter, and I wish his mother would just come and take the internet away from him. I’m disappointed that someone decided it was necessary to not only unfollow me on twitter, but to also tell me that they were unfollowing me because if Romney had won “I would not have been respectful.” Because apparently they are telepathic? I have no idea.
Feel free to unfollow me on twitter. You don’t even have to tell me why.
(I would have been respectful. Because I believe you can respect the position, even if you do not respect the man.)
I am so proud of my home state of Maryland which voted to legalize same sex marriage.
As President Obama said last night:
I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting.
America, I believe we can build on the progress we’ve made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class. I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you’re willing to work hard, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you’re willing to try.
I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggests. We’re not as cynical as the pundits believe. We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. We are and forever will be the United States of America.
This has been a hard election. It has been a hard election to be in social media, to be in my other job, or to just be in this country. But honestly, and maybe I’m wrong, I think we are all going to be ok.
Maybe it is some time for some LOL cat pictures?
