I've shed more than a few tears today. I've been shaken to the core about the people in my country and in myself because I never believed that what I thought was impossible could happen.
But it did.
I have no words, so I offer up a few from Hillary Clinton's concession speech. We must keep in mind her grace and wisdom as we move forward into a scary and uncertain future.
"I count my blessings every single day that I am an American, and I still believe, as deeply as I ever have, that if we stand together and work together with respect for our differences, strengthen our convictions, and love for this nation, our best days are still ahead of us.
"Because, you know, I believe we are stronger together and we will go forward together. And you should never, ever regret fighting for that. You know, scripture tells us, let us not grow weary of doing good, for in good season we shall reap. My friends, let us have faith in each other, let us not grow weary and lose heart, for there are more seasons to come and there is more work to do."
