I am disappointed and heartbroken that Hillary Clinton lost the election. There's no "but" with a silver-lining. I need some time to process--to feel--this.
Any gratitude I feel is in knowing that I am not alone. My husband, my kids, my friends, and even a stranger in a coffee shop shared their sadness and anxiety. It's a good reminder we're all in this together, even if voters just elected a person who would have us believe that's not true. I still believe that, shaken as I am.
