Election

As the election has recently come to a close, many people have expressed their dissapointment and anger at results of the election. I think that these is a perfectly normal reactions to those who supported a candidate other than Trump, and I'm not trying to say that people don't have a right to be upset. However, if you are upset about the outcome, then you need to do something about it. This is a crucial time for many young people. For many, this election was a choice between the lesser of two evils, and it would be normal for that to turn a new voter away from politics. If this applies to you, I urge you to rethink this, and in turn become even more involved in politics than before. We as the people have a power that many in the world do not have, and that is the power of democracy. We as a people need to exercise this power to the highest extent. Allow yourself to become a part of your a community, become involved in the local government. There are many opportunities availiable that many people don't take a hold of, and exercise your civil duties. Do your research on candidates, vote, and become involved in local politics. It's up to us as citizens, not politicians, to decide the outcome of this next election. If you don't like something, fix it.

  1. I believe that we should not be protesting Trump's presidency, but rather put forth a rigorous effort to prevent the particular Trump supporters who choose to harass minorities in his name.
