Dear America, 

We the People  have some significant choices to make in the next few days, choices that will lead us down a path that,  to most of us is uncertain.  

In a time when everything seems out of [our] control, there is one thing we can do-it’s something we’ve always done so it should come easy for us-the peaceful transition of power in our highest office.  

What I mean by this is,  let’s NOT react to the outcome of a very divided, stressful election season,  but rather respond to our grievances the way Americans always have. If riots break out and we fight ourselves-like we see in third-world countries-we will essentially be giving up any power of the people we have left . We will be giving “them” exactly what they want. . .an excuse to take full control over the  “unruly”  masses of American people. I say we don’t give them what they want.

Never believe anything until it has been officially denied . Claud Cockburn


I say we Hold the Line, resist any desire to take to the streets in violent protest which will only have long-term, negative effects on our communities and our nation.

I truly believe that no matter what *”side of the aisle”  we’re on, when push comes to shove we all love our country and want the best for it . 

I don’t know about y’all,  but I’m ready for all of this to be over . . . Although I’m pretty sure there will be more unexpected (and unprecedented, no doubt ) events to follow.

May God have mercy on this nation as we embark into an unfamiliar and uncertain future.
