8 years ago, Obama was elected President. I didn’t vote for him. While Mccain was a weak candidate, I didn’t believe in the promises of Obama.
4 years ago, Obama was re-elected. Now, I DID believe that Romney would have made a good president and that Paul Ryan was a strong running mate. So I was disappointed when they lost.
But I was okay. I suffered in silence. Year after year, I watched the divisiveness of our country grow larger than the Grand Canyon and the miracle of the ACA has already started to crumble. But I held my tongue. I was ridiculed at a party this fall when the Trump bashing started and the only thing I said was, “I’ll be voting for Trump and I think we can find something far more interesting to talk about.” Seemed reasonable to me.
I’m sorry so many of my friends are disappointed in the election results. Believe me, I’ve felt your pain. I’ve felt your fear that this country is not going in the right direction. I didn’t post meme’s or vicious vitriol. I just put my head up and did my best to make my life, and those around me, okay.
I hope you can too. If not, well…you know. Heh.
The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection.
