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.

We’re wearing white today to honor the suffrage movement and the women that came before who fought so hard for us to have the right to vote.
White was the official color of the Suffrage movement.

It doesn’t get any better or local than this.
