This is my first and last political post. I have had so many mixed emotions today. All day I have been trying to figure out how to write them all down. I've debated even sharing my feelings but after hours of thought decided to just go for it.
The candidate I voted for unfortunately didn't win. However, I am supporting our new leader with an open mind and hoping to see positive change within our nation. I hope for healing and to reunite. I challenge everyone to go watch both Hillary & Trump's speeches. BOTH OF THEM, no matter what side you are on, or if you're not even on a side at all. May we have an openmind to appreciate and respect one another's values, hopes and dreams. We don't have to agree with them but respect is key.
Today I have learned I cannot look to one person to fix all the things I think need to be changed. I need to be doing my part to bring joy, hope and happiness to my family, friends and my community. That alone can make a change and make a difference. Barbra Bush said "Your success as a family, our success as a society, depends not on what happens in the White House but on what happens in your house." This is such a great reminder that I can make a difference. I can and I will do all I can to love my neighbor and try my best to be a Christlike friend, daughter, sister, and human being.
