The People’s President

7 days post-election.

I am still gutted, heart on the ground. I feel numb and cynical and angry.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is doing what she has always done. She’s picked herself up so she can continue to lead the charge. She’s calling on us to do our part, ensuring the arc bends toward justice.

We don’t deserve her, and I’m not as generous in believing that America is good and worthy. But I’ll be damned if I don’t give it my all to carry the torch.
