I was feeling a little lightheaded and I could feel my blood pounding in my head.
No surprise, it was a little high and my pulse was racing.
I know it’s because of everything that’s going on right now with my family and our nation.
There’s a lot on my plate and I’m struggling to maintain my mental health, along with so many other Americans.
I did not vote for Donald Trump.
I endured his presidency because he was elected to the Office of the President.
And I would’ve survived another four years of Trump’s presidency had he won again.
I have friends and family who support Trump and I refuse to demonize them or lump them in with the insurrectionists at the Capitol last Wednesday just because they see the world differently than I do.
They too wish for a united America.
I’m hoping as the weeks pass that this nation will begin to heal itself from the rift that has developed in our two-party system.
I am hopeful that in the end, gentler more peaceful times will be upon us.
Love is not cancelled.
