A Message to All My Followers

My boyfriend and I prayed the Great Litany twice last night as the potential paths to Hillary Clinton’s presidential win narrowed. As I wake up this morning, I feel physically sick.

We will lose so much during these next 4 years. Everything President Obama has fought so hard to accomplish will be ripped from our grip. But it is important to remember that each and every day brings a new opportunity to stand strong in the face of evil. The sun will still rise. Birds will still sing. The universe will continue to thrive, as if nothing at all has happened. We must be as perseverant as the universe. Like the sun, we must rise each and every day. Like the birds, we must continue to sing, regardless of our surroundings.

I still can’t accurately convey how I feel. But I want every one of you to know that in the end, it always gets better. Love always triumphs. Good always defeats evil. Righteousness always prevails over sin. In the end, it is God who is always victorious.

The next 4 years, we need to spend every ounce of spare time we have reforming state and local Democratic Parties. We need to preach from our pulpits about the evils of sin and God’s loving, life-giving, liberating power over Death. We need to keep our chins up and continue on, slowly dredging a new path towards progress, one step at a time.

Don’t lose hope. I know it’s easy, but try your absolute hardest to not lose hope. If you’re poor, a person of color, a woman, LGBT, an immigrant, or a religious minority, try your absolute hardest to keep moving forward. And when you feel like giving up, know that there is a God who loves you more than you can possibly imagine, and that this God is a jealous God in whose Kingdom there is no room for evil.

I hope you all get some time to rest today. Don’t forget to stay hydrated, eat regular meals, and get some sleep. Don’t forget to pray.

In the end, evil always loses.
