I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that this past week was one of shock and surprise to so many. I won't talk politics on here but what I will say is that there's a divide in our country that's downright scary. The night of our election and the days that followed, I tried hard to stay off social media. So much anger and so much hate. I've seen friends become enemies over this, with each side as passionate as the other. It's truly left me speechless. I have a pit in my stomach that won't go away.
The weeks ahead will be filled with uncertainty, dread for some and optimism for others. We have a lot of changes coming but now is not the time to foster that anger and hate towards one another. No matter what "side you're on" BE KIND. That's the biggest takeaway, my biggest advice. We need to be GOOD to one another, support one another and listen with empathy, not resistance.
Each side is passionate but we are all in this same country, the USA is a beautiful country, full of opportunity. We can't ever forget that!
So on Veteran's Day, I want to thank those who so tirelessly have served and continue to serve us. Our country is always worth fighting for!
