On This Veteran’s Day After The Election.
November 11, 2016 § 1 Comment
I know it’s Veteran’s day and I know I should take a break from the political posts, but this election was so different than any other. I’ve been trying to understand my deep depression that I feel right now and it finally hit me this morning. In 2000 when Bush was elected there was a foreboding feeling of the same darkness, but that was before 9/11, The collapse of our economy, Newtown, ISIS, The Iraq war, Orlando and the list goes on. At a time when we need a strong steady leader to reassure us — our country elected a mad man with no legislative experience. By not allowing the usual Press that follows a President Elect around to document history he has added to the insecurity I’m feeling. We can’t allow him to shut the press out.
