There Are No Words

There are just no words.  I am devastated.  I can't even cook today.

It's really devastating news to wake up to here in London as well. I don't even want to call myself an American. :( Seems like a good day for take out or ordering in. I know I will be!
I can't cook, eat, or stop crying. What is to become of us?

I do not like what this says about our country...tears for us.

It really is scary!!
Last night before I went to bed I thought, okay, they haven't closed the polls on the west coast yet. We could still beat him. I woke up and turned on the TV and died. I will not be able to adult today. I am so scared for gays, latinos, Muslims, anyone on social security, and women everywhere. I am scared to death! What is that saying?

"Winter is coming."

Yeah. But we have to shake it off and get to work.

I got in my car and drove across town to the school where I am chaplain. Children of color. One third grader who is trans. Immigrant children arriving daily. I smiled. I hugged. I handed out stickers. I read stories. It was the best I could do.
I am with you....I have carried a heavy heart with me all day. I am worried for my children and their children. What kind of world allows someone who behaves in such a vile manner to hold the most powerful office.
For crying out loud.

Oh my darling! Do not despair. Our children listen and look to us, not elected officials! We show them love, caring and sharing and forgiving and acceptance. Think about the women who sacrificed all to give us the vote, less than 100 years ago. Hillary cracked that glass ceiling, and one of our daughters, or granddaughters will smash it. The hand that rocks the cradle will rule the world.

I couldn't even bring myself to post today on the blog. I was already off work (scheduled a day off a month ago, coincidentally) and I consider it a mental health day. Stayed in bed most of the day, depressed. nervous, anxious. It'll be a few days of that and then I'll dust myself off and figure out what to do next to counter what's coming. Hang in there (such wonderful comments from those above), we'll all get through this.

I am with you. I live in rural. south west Ontario, ..... I just couldn't wrap my head around this. I do blame the media attention and widespread coverage.... they sensationalize so much and then apply their journalistic skills in reporting the aftermath. Anyways.... there's a lot of work for you all to do...to undo the damage and unrest. Media and journalists please step up.... integrity over what you believe sells to the masses.

I'm in a state of shock. I just need to grieve for my country
Jim said…
Like most of the commentors above, Joyce, I am in shock as well.
What this tell me however is that this was obviously not the time, and obviously not the person to move forward with progressive ideas that will give everyone a better life.
It IS time for us all to wake up and have a look around.... then start the rebuilding that is so needed. Time to clean out all that accumulated 'dust' under that 'rug'.

Seriously people, listen to yourselves. You lived through Dubya, you will live through The Donald.

My prediction is that he will surprise you who despise him so, and tremendously disappoint those of us who voted for him, because don't they always?

But I really doubt you have much to fear from a Manhattan Republican who has donated to the Dems his entire adult life, and whose daughter is quite good friends with Chelsea Clinton.

It is still unbelievable to me! No way on earth do I understand this!
