  1. I started this draft a few weeks ago and honestly was hoping to delete everything in it and post it with just a single bullet: "The fact that we just elected the first female president"
  2. But that didn't happen.
  3. And now I've come to reflect on the words I put here. And I've turned to this community because you are all beautiful souls and you all say things much more eloquently than I ever could.
  4. I'm here because I'm inspired by all of you.
  5. Because I am very lucky. I recognize my privilege in this world as a wealthy white female living in a blue city / state.
  6. And I know that while I am truly terrified of what the next four years will bring, I know that I will survive them.
  7. And I also recognize that not everyone is as lucky.
    I realize that there are so many of you who are truly and genuinely scared for your lives.
  8. And I want to let you all know that I am here for you. We are here for you. We are all here for each other, because united we stand but divided we fall.
  9. Know how proud I am to "know" all of you on here. Each and every one of you from each and every walk of life, with your own strengths, weaknesses, and flaws.
  10. These words are for you. And I hope that we as a community, and we as a country, will survive, and we will continue to grow.
    Our fights not over. It's just beginning.
  11. So, I am inspired by:
    (My original draft)
  12. People who follow their dreams
  13. People who are confident
  14. People who are strong
  15. People who are genuinely trusting
  16. People who are genuinely happy
  17. People who truly care about making the world a better place
  18. People of li.st
  19. Stay strong, spread love, be here for each other. It's all we can do right now.
  20. ❤️
