The election is OVER! We can once again watch television without the barrage of political advertisements! Now the news…that’s another story. The news, online and Facebook is full of people who are protesting the results…can we all just grow up a bit? Please? Other than encouraging all to VOTE, I have abstained from sharing my political views and preferances and will continue to do so as I believe in the right to privacy in my choices.
There are posts on Facebook of longtime friends seperating over others CHOICE for President, news is reporting ongoing PROTESTS over Trump winning the Presidency…really? The Country has spoken, accept it graciously, show respect and move on!
Regardless of which candidate was your CHOICE, only unity will bring change. Crying, screaming, protesting and destroying things will not make anyone see your point of view, it will only make them see you as weak and widen the divide. If you really want change in this country, sit down and TALK with your opponents, express your views peacefully with one another. Most Americans on both sides have more in common than you think.
