So today I voted for the very first time in a presidential election. I left the polls feeling extremely optimistic and hopeful that my fellow Americans would make the right choice.
Now, as I watch the votes get counted I’m experiencing a plethora of emotions and I feel physically sick and anxious.
I feel like I’m in so much shock because this man has literally built his campaign around sexism and racism and yet somehow he’s leading in this election. People of America have the nerve to tell me that we live in a post-racial society but obviously that’s not true. Your votes have proved that.
Even though its not over yet I just want everyone to know:
America has been through so much already. We’ll get through it. No matter what happens tonight we have to remember that we as a country have the endurance to fight back.
Until next time,
Hit me up on social media!
