outofwater: Me outside St John's before my confirmation at the Easter Vigil 2016 (Default)
[personal profile] outofwater
I am probably helped by realizing a few days ago that the level of support Trump had meant that, whether we won or lost, half the country would feel hurt and left out of our political leadership in a way that seemed more pronounced than most elections.

So I have been trying to figure out how to stand up for what is right & oppose what is wrong, without acting in ways that unnecessarily promote more division. In ways that respect the dignity of every human being, including those who disagree with me.

I still have no idea HOW to find that path, and I expect that I will miss the mark more often than I hit it over the next four years, and that there are likely to be situations where there are no paths that avoid compromising one side or the other of that equation. But I worry about what happens if the depth of division we have seen over the last several years continues, almost as much as I worry about the future actions of a President Trump with a Republican-controlled Congress.
