After the election, everything got quiet for a few minutes. We all said to each other, what just happened? We all said to each other, How did I get here?
Then things got noisy really quickly. And we couldn’t hear ourselves think because there was so much noise and so many people saying something loudly. It is the end of the world.
This is the way the world ends, this is the way the world ends, this is the way the world ends, not with a bang but a whimper.
This was not how we expected the world to end, or the empire to end. We expected the trumpets to sound as God promised. The trumpets shall sound and the dead shall be raised.
But no trumpets sounded when the whole world changed.
We now have a disaster of a president, who among many other faults supports white supremacy. We have a president who doesn’t respect women and is a white supremacist who is against caring for the environment. The news of his administration gets progressively worse.
This disaster puts other issues in perspective; other problems that loomed large are not large. What is a disaster? After a disaster, your life is never the same.
America will never be the same.
