2018 Election Reflection

Wednesday, November 07, 2018 5:22 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Yesterday’s election results lifted my spirits.  There were important races across the country where candidates ran on healthcare, and economic and social justice issues.

I am encouraged.  I get to continue resisting and protesting policies from an administration that supports white nationalism, racism, sexism, and trans-phobia.  I refuse to normalize the words and actions of the national political theater in the white house.

I am encouraged.  I now have more allies in the U.S. House of Representatives, many of them women and people of color.

I am encouraged.  The process of change takes time.  There are the beginnings of a swell toward increased concern for the welfare of others.

Where will the country be after two more years when the presidential election rolls around?

I hold on to a naïve notion of human progress, despite the setbacks that I can see wherever I look.  For, after all. I am encouraged.
