I'm waking up this morning in a country I feel like I barely know or understand. Donald Trump has apparently won enough electoral votes to become the next president of the United States.
As a Bernie Sanders supporter this scrapes the bottom of the worst-possible-outcome barrel. We are now a country moving backward in the tide of forward thinking change. We are now a country in distress.
I just ordered a handful (because the loss of one or two is inevitable) of American Flag lapel pins. I plan to wear one, upside down, every day for the next 4 years to show just how distressed I believe this country is as well as how distressed I am as an American with a person like Trump at the wheel. My pins should arrive on Tuesday.
I thought I felt icky when I had to register as a Democrat to vote for Bernie, I have never been ashamed of this country - today I am.
