Well, Election Day is here.
I wish I was happy about it, but I’m just not.
I won’t rehash all the things I’ve already said for the past couple of months. My feelings on this are well documented.
Well, my feelings on the Presidential election are well documented.
I haven’t talked about the California Senate race or the House of Representatives. Mostly because I just didn’t know what to do. Both candidates in both races are from the same party and there’s no option to write anyone in and I wasn’t impressed with any of the candidates.
Ultimately, I didn’t vote for a Senator or my Representative. And I wrote in a name for President.
This election is weird.
There are no words for how glad I am it’s almost over. I just wish the end of the day wasn’t going to mean what it’s going to mean.
Anyway, there will be time for reflecting on this race later. For figuring out where we all went so horribly wrong. How we got so far off track and how to live beside people who have shown their true colors.
I don’t know what will happen tomorrow. Heck, I don’t know what will happen over the next few hours.
People have said a lot of terrible and hurtful and hateful things. On both sides. Well, on ALL sides really because a lot of us are stuck somewhere in the middle.
Today, no matter what happens, we just need to be kind. We don’t have to agree. We don’t have to live the way someone else voted. Or that they chose NOT to vote altogether.
None of that matters.
What matters is that we all still have to face each other tomorrow.
So, let’s be kind.
Let’s not let this election ruin us.
