I honestly couldn't take it last night, especially after the news about my home state Wisconsin. So I went to bed and woke up to our country having made a moment in history, but not for the reason we all hoped.

Everyone is visibly shaken up today. I think this is something none of us expected to happen. And I want to thank and appreciate everyone that's reached out to me and asked me If I was okay and needed support. More than ever I feel really fortunate to go to school where I do. Because as intolerant as we are of republicans on our very liberal campus sometimes, literally every rally I saw yesterday was one for Hillary, I think we are conscious of how this news is affecting everyone. Whether you voted for Trump or Hillary. Thank you to my friends, my wonderful, extremely supportive, loving and conscious college house.

We truly are a nation divided, by political parties, by race and education and socioeconomic status, but at the end of the day, whether we disagree on gay marriage and women's rights, we still believe that there are fundamental human rights, that we all have access to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Today's just not gonna be one of those happy days.. Take care of one another. It's gonna be a long road ahead.
