Still sad and somewhat confused. I've read way too many analyses of why/how this happened, blame and accountability cast hither and yon. I do not plan to march on Washington (or anyplace else) and I do not plan to sign a petition asking electoral college members to break their pledges. I am trying to focus on what Hillary said, quoting John Wesley, about doing all the good that I can. That's where I am today. And thank you for asking, because I needed to sort out feelings into words.
And that is where I am today. Tomorrow I might be someplace else.
This is the image that has stayed with me. It seems this young mom was taking a walk in the nearby woods, trying to clear her head about the election, when she encountered Mr. and Mrs. Clinton. She reports that she and Mrs. Clinton shared a hug and some pleasantries. And someone took a picture.
Two days after the worst day of her life, Mrs. Clinton certainly would have been justified in saying, "I'm sorry. I need my space." But she didn't. Instead, she set a lovely example.
