Time to face the music… Donald J. Trump is our president. Full stop. And unless someone has a flux capacitor or magic time turner they want to share, we need accept this inconvenient truth and prepare ourselves for a rough four years.
What can we do about it? Complain about it on Facebook to people who already agree with us? Hibernate for the next four years? Move to another country?
I vote we join the resistance and choose to act. If we have any hope of stemming this rising tide we need to organize ourselves and defend our country and beliefs by being the change we want to see in the world.

My commitment to everyone reading this blog is that I promise to be compassionate, fair and practical. I will never publish something I wouldn’t say directly to one my Republican friends, which I am proud to say I have many, I will endeavor to assume “good intent” and I will be respectful of your time and attention by providing practical advice. And as former first lady, Michelle Obama said so eloquently said, “When they go low, we go high.”
