OK, liberals, now we must demonstrate our grace, our humanity and our good will in the midst of the most devastating political result--across the board--in our personal histories. Bush in the White House was our nightmare. We have reached even lower in our despair with last night's election results.
But I will wish Mr. Trump well and I will pray that he is good. I will ask god that she guide Mr. Trump and those around him to build a better America, to forget the man he was during the campaign and be a president with compassion, understanding, wisdom, intelligence and a deep desire to learn what is right.
Trump is brighter than Bush and is far more savvy in many ways, though he has not shown himself to be a good man. It is up to him to demonstrate that he can use his strengths to make America a better place, not one that makes life miserable for large portions of its people--citizens and non-citizens. It is up to him and his advisors to feel for the poor, the aged and the ill, to protect the rights of those who are different from the older, white, middle class and blue collar people who voted for him. His administration, we hope, will restore the middle class and workers' rights in order to sdtrengthen our economy. Those at the top will be fine, regardless.
It is especially crucial that he understand the absolute power he has and that he not be a vengeful child when yielding nuclear weapons. I fear for the entire world in that instance.
Finally, I want those of us in opposition to Mr. Trump's stated stances, to continue to fight, to mend fences with our friends and family who supported him, and to try to create an America that is far better than Donald Trump.
