What have you done America????

Remember this scene from Game of Thrones???? that last visual of the season says it all....the people in the room look terrified as they look at Cerise & the cretins around her...... there is a sense of utter doom...of hopelessness......That is how I feel today.... I still cannot wrap my head around what has happened.... here is something to think about..... The last time the Republicans held the Presidency, House & Senate was in 1928....in 1929 the stock market crash.... that would be the tip of the iceberg for us today....

Today was the 15th wedding anniversary for the Hubby & I....neither of us felt like celebrating.....we were just too upset....sick to our stomachs.... I do not think people in this country understand what they have done....For those who think I am overreacting....Well, it won't take long to see the consequences of their choices... Hang on!!! we are going back 100 years....

We sat and felt like it was watching a car crash and there was nothing that could be done to stop it. We had the same feeling when 'Brexit' occurred. what a topsy turvy world it has become - very unsettling and the backlash feels very very imminent - blessings from a cold and grey north of england

My husband and I feel exactly the same and I vowed last night to wake this morning with new attitude and feel the sun's warmth;then I read that 5 people were shot in Washington state at an anti-T protest. and so begins the legacy of DT- HATE and more

Yesterday I was too sick (angry, sad, disappointed) to even function. But as our President O has said, the sun has risen and is
shining on me today...I feel better. We have a long road ahead of us with a lot of hard work to do. I have decided I will do
my best not to fall into the jaws of the hateful beast, but to live my life with love and light, shining it wherever I go. We will all need
to lean on each other during the rough times...but we can do it. Love will always win!

Yes, it has brought well concealed ugliness front and center hasn't it? I don't yet know quite how to adequately try to explain it when the Grands ask the difficult questions I have no answers for. For now at least I'm feeling quite a range of uncomfortable Emotion about the Polarity within a Country I Love but I no longer recognize. Big Hugs from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

Makes us even stronger, Linda. Don´t give up, there will be un uprise in the States, you will surely not go back 100 years, there are so many like we are. But honestly, is it a wonder??? So many, who are left behind, they saw establishment having a party, celebrating with stars, already finding highest words for eachother... I saw that too and thought, "WHAT are doing? Now so many people will vote for Trump! So many people will feel provoked! And this hits even deeper than the dumb provocations of a Trump! They will vote AGAINST Madam Clinton!" We watched on CNN. And rubbed our eyes, how this all developed.
Saw a wonderful Bernie Sanders inthe beginning, before he got shoved out...
Now the world is holding its breath. A Donald is in the white house.
We stay strong in our believes anyhow.
I pray for mother earth.
Hugs from Méa, here in Germany

Hi everyone...Thank you so much for such heartfelt comments...They helped...I have dusted myself off & will focus on the holidays...after that I am going to do what I can for the next two years...looking forward to 2018....hopefully we can prevent any more damage than what will occur...Now the Republicans own this...it is on them..... I have granddaughters that I want a country that is progressive for them...& not lead by a racist, sexual predator, misogynist homophobe who despises the beauty of diversity in this country... we WILL overcome!!!

HUGS to you all <3
