What will we tell our children?

Well, here’s what I told my children in 2008:

This is a democracy.  Mr. Obama was not our choice, but the American people have voted, and even if we don’t like the outcome, Mr. Obama will be our new president.  Let’s pray for him that he makes good decisions.

And here’s what I told my children in 2012:

I know you’re disappointed that Romney didn’t win, but Obama won fair and square.  Remember what I told you in 2008—you may not always agree with him; heck, you may never agree with him, but he is the president.  Let’s pray for him that he makes good decisions.

So, what should you tell your children today?

You tell your children that this is how it works in a democracy. You tell your children that this is what happens upon discovering that the Democratic nominee, in her capacity as Secretary of State, had left behind Americans to die in a hostile region that she herself had responsibility for creating. You tell your children that this is what happens when you try to hide that you’re more than likely engaging in illegal activities as evidenced by the fact that you’ve installed an unsecured server in your home, thereby exposing classified correspondence to foreign enemies. You tell your children that this is what happens when the Democrat party cheats one of their own in order to make the Anointed One the nominee. This is what happens when hardworking Americans become so sick of the government unreasonably taxing them in order to redistribute the wealth that they’re willing to back a candidate who often waxes absurdity and has no political experience whatsoever. This is what happens when Republicans can’t get their collective shizz together enough to bring forth a solid candidate who tells it like it is, calls out ISIS for what it is, stands up for America, and pulls no punches.

Hillary Clinton and her minions metaphorically gave birth to Donald Trump.

I’m not going to ever pretend that Trump was my #1 guy, and I didn’t even vote in the Indiana primary because I couldn’t decide for whom I should vote. But for all of his blundering talk, I don’t ever remember Trump demonstrating that he was a racist, a sexist, or a homophobe. Where is this coming from?  Assigning to him attributes that he doesn’t deserve is not going to change the outcome of this election.  It certainly didn’t work before the election, did it?

Americans have voted for Donald Trump as our next President of the United States.  Let’s pray for him that he makes good decisions.

Following my years as an elementary and middle school teacher, I decided I wanted to spend the second half of my life just writing. Currently, I work as a technical writer for a software company, fulfilling my passion for writing and editing, and in between the times I'm trying to figure out how to put really complicated ideas into words the rest of the world can understand, I write novels. The Gym Show, published in March 2014, is my first novel. I'm already half-way through with my second novel--a title soon to be revealed. The creative side of me loves to write, but the teacher in me loves to edit, so let me help you craft your message, write your articles, mend your prose, and get people to read what you've written.
