I tried but I just couldn't bring myself to post about anything today.. this country that I call home is breaking my heart. To think we were in the land of the free.. it is not just the orange man and his actions it is the fact that half the country supported this man. We consider ourselves lucky to live in a state that is more diverse and accepting but not all states are such. And I pray for my fellow brown men, women and children whose lives will be so greatly affected by ignorance and fear of an incorrect stereotype. 

I am moved to tears by the hope that flickers, when I see people of all colors, race and religion protesting against the injustices against one.. I see all the good in so many of my fellow American's and it reminds me of why I call this great country home.

I don't like to get political on this blog but I don't really see this an being political. This is our lives, our future we are talking about and the side you are standing on today will shape your tomorrow.

I am not American, but I am sickened by what is going on. It is no longer America the Beautiful or the Admired. It is a country that the world is shaking its head over. Maybe some shaking in our boots too.

I am not American either but I am convinced this latest insanity goes against the core of American values and you are right to speak out. There have been protest marches against DT and his latest insane edict all over Britain. I have joined in spirit, work and family commitments make it difficult to join in person. Thinking of all those Americans who are shaken to their core and upset. As for the others, I hope their eyes finally open. Although of course those who don't want to see won't. xx

I get ticked off going through my news feed on my phone. It's so wrong.

I am disgusted and heartbroken too. I cannot believe this is actually happening, and I feel sick about it. But I too am so heartened by so many people raising their voices and protesting. I am looking for every way in which I can help. We who have must take care of those who have not--otherwise, what are we doing? I'm lighting my candle for common humanity.

I'm heartbroken too. This might be a product of living in a big city on the coast, but I'm truly baffled by all the hate rhetoric I heard over the last year and what baffles me more is that it wasn't a deal breaker when it came to the election. I just don't understand. I'm saddened over the events this past week, but I do have glimmers of hope when I see the numbers of people standing up to fight for what is right.

I am not American, but in 2014, I had an opportunity to live in your country for a year. I love the fact that Americans are very much accepting to different races. So it truly saddens me to hear about the news that's been happening right now. But I'm still hoping for the better! God bless us all. :) Hope to hear from you soon!

Love, Airish

It's a sad state of affairs. I actually can't believe he went through with it. The rest of the world is so damn mortified by all this, let's hope that our hopes outweigh their negativity and stupidity.
