I do not like to talk about politics. It upsets many people and I’d rather stay positive on my blog. I stayed away from commenting on anything during the campaign trail. I did not feel comfortable voicing opinions on either potential candidate’s qualifications.
However, today I am sad, scared, and shocked. I am sad that so many have turned a blind eye to Trump’s comments on women and minorities. I am scared to see what our future will be like. I am scared of the all the close minded people in this world. It has not even been a full 24 hours since Trump won the presidential race and I have seen comments on social media declaring “You’re all going back to your countries now”, “Muslims shouldn’t be here anyway” and “All Hispanics will now be deported”. That truly scares me. I am shocked a man who brings out so much hatred in people is our next President.
I hope we will have a peaceful upcoming four years. I hope things will work out for the better in the end but today I am nervous for the future of our country.
