Am I disappointed at the people’s choice to elect Donald J. Trump to the American Presidency? Very much so!
Will I hit the streets in protest, tip over a police car, burn a shirt? Of course not!
And neither should you!
We had an election. Now we have transition of power in a way few countries enjoy. When President-elect Trump is inaugurated in January of 2017, he will become our main man.
What I’m grateful for today is that our main-man-to-be already has reached out to his detractors and his supporters for their help and understanding as he learns the ropes, so to speak, and our power people who lost in the election immediately congratulated him and offered him well wishes. President Obama met with President-elect Trump today and later referred to the meeting as “excellent.”
It’s what we do in America. We come together for the benefit of our Democracy and its survival. That’s a lot for which to be thankful! When you’re disappointed, thank your lucky stars for your benefits!
Have you written anything about the political history of America? It’s such fertile ground to explore!
