there are few words

I’m shocked and sick to my stomach. I cannot abide by the hate and fearmongering evident in tonight’s election results.

Earlier in this election cycle I posed the idea that those of us who’ve read about the atrocities of World War II and always wondered if we would have had the courage to stand up to hate and evil now had our chance to find out. I still believe that to be true.

In the wake of fear and hate, I’m just going to share a powerful story I listened to in the middle of the night last night when I couldn’t sleep.

I pledge to not be silent. I will continue to work to be an ally. It is all I can do.

Finally, this from a Justin McElroy via Twitter:

“I’m going to wake up and keep trying to do good and so are you and nobody gets to vote on that.”
