I won't lie, yesterday was difficult. Today I am taking a deep breath and moving forward. In a way we are all living in our own version of reality, true to ourselves but probably strange and foreign to anybody else. If I needed to try to explain or justify my feelings surrounding this election, then you wouldn't understand anyway and that is okay.
my point today; it's okay to disagree. It is okay to debate, tease and
even gloat a little bit. If you want to sing "We are the Champions" at
the top of your lungs because your candidate won the election then that
is your prerogative. But don't devalue the emotions and reactions from
the other half of the population, the side that did not win the
electoral college. This election was vicious and brought out the worst
in our country. Unfortunately, it seems that the conclusion has not
silenced the vicious rhetoric.
We all need to calm down, push the
feelings to the side (yes, again I will rely upon avoidance) and move
forward. Let's agree to talk with friends and family who understand our
reaction to the election, whether it be on the side of victory or
defeat. For the time being, I would like to see an end to the debate,
the constant bickering and the fruitless attempts to change opinions. At
this point, opinions are set and are not vulnerable to influence.
Attempts to sway are only increasing the divide within our country.
this morning I will be recording a podcast exploring the possible
implications with prosthetic care as a result of the change in
leadership. Of course we do not yet know definitely what will happen,
but we will attempt to decipher the clues that have been given
throughout the campaign. I hope that you will tune in and listen.
Regardless of where you land on the political spectrum, information is
