Disillusionment

November 11, 2016 § Leave a comment

Like more than half of America*, I’m heartbroken by the results of this election cycle.  Unlike most people I talk to, I’m less heartbroken by the candidate himself (who has always shown himself for who he is) and much more so by my fellow Americans who saw him for who he is and still chose him to represent our country.

I have two daughters who were able to vote in this — their first — presidential election.  My disillusionment comes from seeing this election through their eyes.  We try to teach our children how to be good people.  We try to teach them from the lessons we learned ourselves … that greed isn’t good and that bad guys don’t win and that all people have inherent worth and dignity.

What do we teach them now?

 

*With 99% reporting, 53% of votes were against the Republican candidate.
