I know that a lot of people are upset right now about what happened with the election last night. I understand that a lot of people didn't have the person they want as President, win.
I know that this election campaign has been horrible on all sides: name calling, media making everyone seem bad, divisiveness... and the list goes on.
Last night my Facebook feed was full of anger, sadness, disgust, and hate. It made me anxious even popping on to Facebook because most of the posts were about hate.
Hate does not drive out hate. Only love does. This statement is how I want to live my life, and I know that even though no one is perfect, including myself, I strive to follow this principle that MLK shared with the world.
It saddens me even more when people become hateful when they're unhappy with a situation. Let's change the situation, or find a way to make the situation better. I know this may seem easier said than done, but we can do it.
Let's come together and find a better way. Let's heal.
Today I'm nervous to go into work because I'm afraid that people will be angry, sad, and complaining all day. I don't know if I can deal with it.
But I will try my best to do my part to answer them with love.
