The Shock and the horror with the news of Americas new President left me in a dark mood feeling helpless. The reality that someone who expressed so vocally hatred for so many could be in the office of highest power in our country seems so hopeless. I feel like we have just jumped back decades in time concerning civil rights. Over the course of the day my mind grasped that we survived the Reagan and all the Bush years. We will survive this too.
Let’s remember our humanity and not succumb to the hate and insults that may seem justified. Hate is never justifiable. Hating the haters only makes it worse. And hating our friends and family for their choices is just… heartbreaking.
I think we need more caring and love in the world. We have to step up for each other. Bigotry and hate in all its forms cannot be allowed to grow. We need to be aware and be a voice in the dark helping to bring back hope and light.
Keep your unconquerable soul alive, do not be afraid together somehow we have to move forward and heal country and ourselves.
Poem Invictus by English poet William Ernest Henley.
Here is your teleport!
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
