Today there are tears in my eyes and a heaviness in my heart as we begin to grapple with the global & domestic ramifications of what has just been done. I’m disgusted because, beyond the competition and surface differences of party politics, I truly believed we would prove that we were better than fear-based narrow-mindedness.
I have no stomach for the trite platitudes and perfunctory calls for unity, but to my friends who are feeling the gravity of today as well – I’m with you. I’m committed to the intellectual, forward-thinking that drives us towards progress and not away. And I’m committed to fighting xenophobia, racism, and misogyny with everything I have as we navigate, tenuously forward.
