I am extremely distraught with what our country has become. A country built on equality and freedom has elected a President that goes against everything we believe in. I am disappointed with who our country chose to be our country's next leader. For the next four years, we have to live with a man who fuels racist, xenophobic, homophobic actions as the Leader of the Free World. Both him and Mike Pence will set us back decades with likely plans of defunding Planned Parenthood, gay conversion camps, and overturning Roe v. Wade.

I hope you Trump supporters enjoyed your "white-lash" and are aware of how many people feel unsafe in the country due to your actions. You would rather choose a man who has no experience in government/military to be our next Commander-in-Chief. The United States is no longer a haven for liberty and equal opportunities; this land is a now represents a place filled with racism and hatred for their own. This is not a promised land; it is now a battleground to protect human rights.

All immigrants, women, POC, LGBTQ+ members, and allies, let us stand in solidarity that we will not stand for the future injustices against our friends and family members. Let us not give up. Let us fight to maintain our freedoms we rightfully deserve to keep.
