As many of you probably know by now, Trump was elected president. I’m well aware that many people (including myself) are disappointed, scared, and shocked. I don’t blame you, I’m very upset about the outcome of last night’s (and this morning’s) election. Many of us are reasonably afraid that instead of peace and kindness, cruelty and destruction will be spread.
There’s good news though. The world is full of loving, caring, talented, peaceful people! Just because we may have doubts that our new president can carry out these traits, does not mean that there is no hope for the United States and the rest of the world.
The world is not just filled with crooked politicians and other people with questionable morals, it’s also filled with people who will go out of their way to help others and listen to cries for help. There are family members and friends who will always be there for us and people whose mission in life is to spread peace, kindness, and love.
I have met so many people both in person and online who fit this description, who raise awareness on important issues and genuinely care about the world and its people. Let’s not forget that.
I know this is a worrisome time for many, but please don’t be so concentrated on the elected president that you forget about all of the amazing people around you! There are people that no matter what, will always be the calm after the storm, the rainbow in the rain, and the light in the darkness.
