My extremely inadequate thoughts on the election

I’m really struggling to find a way to put my thoughts into words about what’s been going on. With the election. The hate. The shock. The disappointment. I still feel numb from it all and I think I’ve hit political overload. I have never been one to write much about politics, neither on my blog or on Facebook, and I intend to keep it that way. Because honestly, it’s way too big of a topic for me to even wrap my head around. And I don’t feel even the least bit qualified to discuss it.

I will say, though, as an American expat, that plenty of my friends and acquaintances have asked me about it. And it’s been overwhelming enough just trying to process it. I feel sad and, unfortunately, not all that surprised at the outcome, even though I feel deeply disappointed.

I don’t possess any desire to discuss it further, but I will say this. This world could use a little bit more love right now. Stop the hate. Come together. And let’s pray things don’t get worse. Because it’s only been a week since the election, and it hasn’t been good.
