Today has been rough. I'd love to spew some hopeful rhetoric about bringing a nation together or that our differences are what makes our nation great. I'm not there. I have been in mourning all day. I called off work as an act of self-care. I am sad. I am frustrated. I am angry as hell. 

So that's where I am.

Right now, it's time for bed though. I am working on exercising this negative energy out of my spirit by morning. It's not who I want to be in the world and it's definitely not what we need. Tomorrow, I will wake up and face the world that I live in - right or wrong, but tonight, I'm allowed to be sad for what should have been.
