I am not OK

The results of last Tuesday hit me really hard and I’ve been in a media blackout since then, both social and mainstream. I’ve had several friends reach out and ask me how I’m doing.

I am not OK.

I am not OK with what the election means for my family’s physical safety. For the safety and security of my LGBTQ friends. My female friends. My Muslim friends. My Jewish friends. My friends of color.

I am not OK with the fear and depression permeating my community.

I am not OK feeling as though we just undid 50 years of social justice work.

I am not OK.

  1. I am not OK either. I am losing hope. I am losing my faith in my judgement: how could I misread our nation to this degree? I did not for a second think this outcome was possible. I am questioning everything but my deep sense of right and wrong and what I see feels wrong to the core.
