Bus Stop Counseling

I had a group of children around me at the bus stop today, all talking to me about the election results. Many of them are biracial and very worried about what will happen. I told them I think we will see a female president in my lifetime, and we have to keep believing and working for it. Like someone in my Zumba class just said, "Do not give in to the fear."

Thank you for the encouragement -- I'm kind of terrified right now and sort of circling the wagons around the things I can count on. But I do need to remember to get back out there and keep working for the things we believe in and doing what we can to make the world a better place.

I was glad to hear, hours after I wrote this, Hillary making similar statements. It is so good to hear that she is not giving up, even though she is still respecting the laws of our election process. We should not stop working to make this country better for everyone.

You probably saw my Facebook post, but yeah. That fear is so palpable.

Remind me what you said in that post. A lot of my friends have been sharing stories, and I might have missed yours.
