I'm very sad after browsing through Faceook this morning. I am of course very concerned about what will happen to the united states with trump as president and congress run by republicans. However, I really wasn't ready for one thing. I read story after story of how racists, bigots, misogynists feel so emboldened by the example that trump sets, that they feel that they have a license to vocally, loudly, aggressively and, yes, violently, attack people for their ethnicity, for their faith, for their sexual orientation, for their need to utilize social services, for the color of their skin, for their political beliefs, etc., etc., etc. I'm not sure I can take four years of this. Or, god forgive, eight.
