This election is making me crazy.

It’s hard to think about anything except the election.

We are at the edge of a precipice in American life

I wanted Obama to win both times.

I wanted W to lose both times, but it’s never seemed more crucial than now.

Trump would return us to a terrible time in American history—a time when it was okay to boss women around, discriminate against people based on their ethnicity or religion, a time when gay people were mostly in the closet.

America is in danger of not being great at all.

I know people who are voting for Trump and I cannot see the world from the point of view where that makes sense. I can’t put myself in those shoes.

If Hillary is elected next week, I’ll start to breathe again, but now, watching the polls is using all my free time and thinking about where I would want to go if Trump wins.

Hillary will win because America is great and because we want to live in a world where respect for other humans is how we live.
