1Speak truth to power
I’m not sure the minority who voted for Trump are prepared for what is coming next. But it’s fantastic that so many of you have turned out to speak truth to power.
2Newly elected president
Truth is the essence of living in a democracy. And yet this newly elected president seems to care very little about it. That worries me.
This man who would be king doesn’t seem to understand the seriousness of the job he is about to undertake.
4Hype v/s Reality
What’s important to this president, as I heard him say on TV early on, is winning. It’s about beating the other guy or gal.
5Male Dominated Society
We have, as a culture, normalized violence against women. We have normalized the wage gap. We have accepted men legislating what we can and cannot do with our bodies, even in cases of rape and incest.
Donald Trump, a man who has a legacy of disrespecting women, now holds the most powerful seat in the world.
People of all races, sexual identities, and religions are out in the streets today across the country. It’s thrilling to see so many people who care so deeply, and are making their voices heard.
8Fight to continue
We will not sit by as our rights are stripped away. We will not hide as the freedoms of others are destroyed.
All I really know is we must continue to speak out.
10Fight for the truth
Today is the beginning of a new movement to hold power accountable to the truth.
